D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

No place emits that warm, nostalgic feeling better than an old-fashioned confectionery with its colorful jars, bottles, and trays of sweet delicacies. Such a location is now found in the Historic Village at D.B. Munger & Co., located next to the Altay Store. 

Part exhibit, part true confectionery, the Historic Village opened its confectionery in June 2014, selling savory hand pies and fancy treats. 

Visit on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the regular season to purchase freshly baked authentic or historically inspired delights such as Chelsea buns, fruit tarts, elderberry or other seasonal fruit hand pies, or the ever-popular rosewater currant cakes, sugar tea cakes, and maple cakes (cookies). On special event weekends only, try our famous Steak & Ale or other savory hand pies. They are perfect for a quick lunch on the go.

A number of the bottles on exhibit are replicas of those found in several mid-1800s shipwrecks more than a century after the vessels went down. In some cases, the food was still edible!
