A Brief History
Hobart Village Antique Mall is located in picturesque North Central Massachusetts. The name of the mall is derived from the historic Inn located on the property. The Inn was built in 1774 on a land grant given to William Hobart.
Prior to and during the revolution the tavern in the Inn was a gathering place for the townspeople. An old register, now in the possession of the Fitchburg Historical Society, contains the names of famous people who stayed there, including: General Stonewall Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, Henry Ward Beecher and Brigham Young, the Mormon leader.
The more recent history of the property has seen the Inn as a popular restaurant and now an apartment house. The old brick house and warehouse served, for many years, as the national headquarters of the Elsa Williams Needlepoint Company.
The Hobart House, brick house and warehouse were purchased in June 1994 by Dick and Janice Fiorentino and Tony and Robin Silva. The have designed the warehouse into “The Hobart Village Antique Mall,” a gathering place for lovers of antiques and collectibles.
Hobart Village Antique Mall is set in the heart of Townsend’s famous Antique Trail. The Group Shop features over 80 dealers displaying a unique variety of vintage antiques and collectibles. All are displayed in a tastefully decorated shop that is spacious and well lit. The Group Shop has a large selection of jewelry, books, porcelain, silver, clocks, glassware, and the largest selection of oak, pine, and mahogany furniture in the area.
