Bisbee’s General Store in Meridale, NY, first operated by Everett Bisbee and later by his son Ruez, was the heart of the community from 1900 until it was destroyed by fire in 1976. People congregated there to shop, get their mail, and chat with their neighbors. This book, which is based on an exhibition of historical materials presented by the Meredith Historical Society at the Delaware County Historical Association in Delhi, NY September-December 2010, records the history of the store with pictures and recollections of some who remember it. This book is a must for anyone who remembers Bisbee’s Store. 72 pages.
