The Frontier Trading Post

One mile east of Chariton, Iowa on Hwy 34, the Frontier Trading Post is located.  This unique store sells gifts, western items, antiques, live bait and tackle, tools, home decor and more. 

On Saturday nights the Soda Pop Saloon has live music, dinner and dancing.  This is a family western style soda pop bar, decked with western decor and soda pop memories.

Norm Paulsen started the Frontier Trading Post on 7th Ave in Chariton and about seven years ago moved out to the present location on Hwy 34.  He has been in business a total of ten years.  The main building consists of about 3200 sq. ft. of space.   You will be surprised at the low prices on the items throughout the store. 

The Hook, Line and Sinker bait and tackle shop is one of the largest bait and tackle shops in Southern Iowa.  They offer a wide variety of poles, reels, tackle and more, plus the lowest prices around.  Check out the mural on the east side of the bait house.  There are many pictures of successful fishing stories on their brag board.  Norm is always ready to make a "good deal". 

Be sure to check out their website at: Frontier Trading Post

In the near future the Lucas County Tourism Center will provide visitors with tourism information for Lucas and surrounding counties.
