Post Office and store, Phippsburg, ca. 1915

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

Description

In the early 1900s the C.C. Pease Store, located at what was called the Crossroads at Phipps-burg Center, was also the post office.

The road ran very close to the store and continued south to Small Point Road, later referred to as the Main Road or Route 209. This road was later relocated. The road east went to Popham through Parker Head.

William V. Percy was the first owner of the store. Later owners were Captain C.W. Locke, the firm of Parker & Percy, and local blacksmith George C. (Cola) Pease, who also worked on building Fort Baldwin in Popham. Well-known local musician Walter Snipe bought the store and the Pease home on Higgins Lane after Mr. Pease’s death.

There have been many successive owners. Although it has had many changes and additions, the store is still in operation in 2018 and owned by the Bisson family.
