Memorial Day 2015 marks 5 years since our birth. Without a lot of fanfare, on Monday, May 31st, 2010 at high noon we opened our doors for business. It's been a great adventure ever since!

Happily, we often hear that The Griswold Inn Store has been a wonderful addition to our campus. We are grateful to all who have patronized the Store over these past five years, many of whom have become regular customers. We look forward to welcoming new patrons and continuing serving all for countless years to come!
