Stephenson's General Store

I’m heading to Leavenworth, IN, (about 20 miles from downtown Corydon) with my sister for a program at the Library. Afterward, she steered us to Stephenson’s General Store for lunch. What a blast that turned out to be!

Here you see our sandwiches; we narrowed it down to two hoagies and split them. We went with the “Officer” with turkey, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and “top secret Russian spy sauce” on the left, and “Ranger Bob” with bologna, pepper jack, onions, jalapeno, and banana pepper on the right. The dill pickle chips added another delicious flavor to our palates. YUMMM!

If you haven’t been to Stephenson’s, it has many components: grocery store section with canning jars and school supplies, canned foods, fresh produce, refrigerated and frozen foods, rubber boots, potholders and kitchen linens. The bathroom is marked as Embalming Room.

The general store has a wacky range of wind chimes, Lodge cast iron cookware, marbles by the bag or by the pound, Mr. Bill and Gumby toys, squirrel and bird feeders, metal signs, t-shirts, and games. Don't pass by the live bait or turkey calls if you have that need.

Then the lunch counter in the back, with a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, and pizzas. Plus ice cream and chocolate-covered cherries and other candies in the chillers.

And prepare to step back in time as you walk to the cash register. Not only is there a cooler with sodas on ice, there is a huge selection of candies from childhood.

Who wants to experience Stephenson’s with me?!

Stephenson's does not have  a website. Address is 618 W Old State Road 62, Leavenworth. Phone is 812-739-4242.

Transitioning to Cruise Director Louisville Area

With this post, I will now be writing primarily from the Southern Indiana/Louisville, Kentucky area. I'll expect to have lots of adventures, since Indianapolis, Evansville, Cincinnati, and Lexington are all within the 100-mile zone. That means lots of daytrips on the horizon. I hope you'll stick with me for the new adventures!
