The Newbury store (above) is a great place for muffins, cookies, DVDs and gifts. It is one of the friendliest stores around.
Newbury has a more colonial-era type of atmosphere which is so familiar to me from Connecticut. It was established in the mid-1700s. Barton, where I live now, is younger, poorer and more remote. Hall's Lake is also in Newbury. Sue, Wingnut, and I went swimming and canoeing there last summer.
