Calef’s Country Store in Barrington, New Hampshire, welcomed former employees and their families to a reunion as part of the store’s year-long 135th anniversary.
The gathering afforded Calef’s management the chance to thank everyone who brought life to the old store. “We may be able to keep the building open,” said owner Cleve Horton, “but it is the employees who lend their spirit to the store.”
Calef’s Country Store opened in 1869 and four subsequent generations of Calefs operated it until the Hortons took over in 1996.
