The Historic Head’s Store

A staple of the St. Albans community since the late 19th century, historic Head’s Store reopens for the season on March 17. Our new menu, inspired by the property’s ties to the Rock Island Rail Road system that traversed these grounds nearly 100 years ago, features a selection of breakfast items, gourmet salads, sandwiches and daily specials. Grab-and-go meals are also available.

We invite you to embark on your own culinary adventure here Wednesdays through Sundays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

A Touch of History

According to local sources, a group of landowners originally founded Head’s Store as St. Albans General Store with a variety of proprietors renting and operating it until 1915. That year, John Pfeiffer purchased the store and proceeded to live in it and raise his family.

In 1941 his daughter, Mae Pfeiffer Head, bought the store and changed its name to Head’s General Store. She ran it until her death in 2002. Shortly thereafter, Thom Sehnert, a valued customer and proprietor of Annie Gunn’s, leased and operated the store.
