The Historic Frenchtown District offers a haven for antique lovers, where a half dozen unique stores dot the beautiful neighborhood. Whether the period is Americana, Victorian, 1904 World's Fair, the Depression era or mid-20th century, you'll find authentic furniture, glassware, linens and antiques. Frenchtown also boasts an eclectic mix of other shops including bridal boutiques, salons, florists, and more.
