Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


Hilton's Store, located at "the square" (the intersection of Route 194/Head Tide Road and Dock Road in 2020) was one of several stores in the Puddle Dock area of Alna in1909.

Owners Lil and Walter Hilton sold dry goods, groceries, shoes, and other staples to local residents. The store also housed the Alna post office.

The gable roof building just behind Hilton's Store was a grain store.

Hilton's Store remained in operation as a general store and post office into the 1960s. It was torn down about 1970. The building housing the grain store was moved in 1944 to a new location on Route 218 and became the Alna Store.
