We took an overnight trip north to the White Mountains this week, and we never go to that part of the state without stopping at the Brick Store in Bath, New Hampshire.
Don’t blink when going through Bath because you’ll miss it. Bath was incorporated in 1761 and was named for a well-known English statesman and orator, William Pulteney, first Earl of Bath.
It covers only 38 squares miles, and the population is around 1,000. During tourist season, the population dramatically increases when visitors flock to Bath to visit the Brick Store, which is the oldest continuously operated country store in the United States, and the 1832 covered bridge next door.
We love the covered bridge and the old store, but the real reason for our stop is to pick up some meat that has been expertly smoked behind this little blackened door.
Have you ever had smoked pepperoni? Yum. I love this little door. 🙂
