Built by John Ralston in 1785, this one-room building was the center of the Ralston Community. It served
as a general store from 1785-1893, and was the local post office from 1893-1941. It was acquired by the Ralston
Historical Association in 1945 and opened as a museum in 1964. Over the years, the museum collection has been expanded
to include a variety of local artifacts including antiques, photographs, maps and manuscripts from the 18th and 19th century.
The General Store Museum is open to
the public on Sundays and holidays, June through mid-October from 1 to 4 PM. The museum is located at
313 Mendham Road - West (Rt. 24), Mendham, NJ at the intersection of Roxiticus Rd. and Rt. 24.
