The Worthington Historical Society Gift Shop


Worthington Historical Society Gift ShopThe Worthington Historical Society is thrilled to announce the grand re-opening of its gift shop at the Old Rectory. The shop, which is currently under renovation, is scheduled to re-open on February 18. For more than 40 years, the Worthington Historical Society Gift Shop has been showcasing an ever-changing variety of conversation pieces, ranging from new and homemade gifts to donated or consigned vintage treasures.  Visitors to the quaint shop will find items such as hand-dipped candles, silver and brass accessories, Maple City Pottery, table linens, artwork and Worthington’s famous Bean Soup mixes.

The shop also features the work of several Worthington artists and authors, including beautifully crafted pieces by local woodworker Steve Cantlon and the historical writings of Jenny McCormick and John Haueisen. Additionally, antique dealers will appreciate the carefully selected inventory of vintage items, including small furniture pieces and other collectibles.

As part of the Historical Society’s commitment to the preservation of Worthington’s history, all proceeds from the gift shop are used to benefit the society’s programs and the maintenance and general up-keep of the Old Rectory and the Orange Johnson House.

The gift shop is located in the Old Rectory at 50 West New England Avenue and is open Tuesday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Be sure to stop by the gift shop the next time you’re looking for the perfect Worthington gift!
