the hurley country store
has a history!

In 1992, Glenn Carlberg and his partner Bea Sattler opened the Hurley Country Store, a wonderful treasure trove of old time general store goodness.  Located in historic Hurley, NY, the Hurley Country Store is a stone's throw from a collection of early colonial American stone houses.  The building currently housing the Hurley Country Store has been a gas station and a general store, but never did its walls contain the plethora of wonderful speciality items that they contain today.

Established in 1662, historic Hurley was in fact for two months the capital of New York state.  In 1777 after the British burned the city of Kingston, the government moved temporarily to Hurley while the government buildings of Kingston were being reconstructed.  One of the stone houses in Hurley is even credited with the honor of having George Washington stop by in 1782.  The area was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1961.  Nestled between historic old stone houses and a thriving corn farming community, what a fitting location for a general store.

Local train historians will brag about Hurley being the site of an original train depot for the New York Ontario and Western Railway.  It's presence can still be felt along Depot St.  What a fitting location for the Hudson Valley's mecca of model railroading supplies.
