Fort Tecumseh Old Fashioned General Store
Ohio’s portion of the Historic National Road offers eclectic insights into the past.
For almost 30 years, Shirley Kinzer has greeted travelers from behind the counter at Fort Tecumseh Old Fashioned General Store. A former gas station and 1920s tourist camp, Kinzer’s Clark County shop has everything from grocery items and gifts to National Road postcards. Kinzer will ring up your purchase on a hand-crank 1941 Dayton cash register. Best of all, penny candy still costs... only a penny.
Fort Tecumseh Old Fashioned General Store, 5520 W. National Rd., Springfield, 937/882-6202
