Harper's Old country Store is one of the oldest continuously operated businesses in West Virginia. The Old Store was built in 1902 and has been operated under the name of "D. C. Harper and Co., a general country store", serving generations. The business, situated in front of the majestic and scenic Seneca Rocks, continues to be operated by the Harper family.

The interior of the store is much the same as in 1902 with many old features and antiques. The original board floor that must be oiled frequently, the antique, metal, blocked ceiling, the original shelving and counters, and numerous antiques and memorabilia give the visitor the feeling of stepping back in time. The architecture of the building along with the big front porch represents the vintage of middle and late 1800s.

The Store is an antique and be truly an educational experience.
