Past, Present and Future

Danby Four Corners Store has been a landmark to locals and travelers alike for decades. The building is listed on Vermont's Register of Historic Buildings. When it was built in 1865, it was likely considered to be a very grand addition to this once-thriving village, when logging, mining and sheep farming were the primary industries. The growth of the marble business led to the advent of the railroad, and Danby's village center gradually migrated southward, closer to the station.

Danby Four Corners Store had been successfully run by members of the same family for decades, eventually garnering a reputation among musicians far and wide, who come for the country hospitality, a wide range of string instruments and accessories, and the opportunity to play together.

We are continuing this tradition, with jams starting later this fall. To begin with, it will be by invitation only, so be sure to let me know if you're interested in participating.In the meantime,
we invite musicians of all levels to come in to play our instruments, including the house piano. We also offer beginner lessons, restringing and repairs, and are always in the market for quality used string instruments in good condition.
