01 Nov Celebrating the Grand Opening of The Campton’s Kitchen & Gallery
FROM 2019 – Archive Post:
On Saturday, November 2, at 11am, the Hancock Area Chamber will hold a Grand Opening celebration at the new Campton’s Kitchen and Gallery at 167 East Front Street, Hancock. The public is invited to attend.
Owners Jim and Laura McManus have lived in Hancock since 2015 when they opened The Camptons Art and Design Studio and Gallery at 422 East Front Street. They moved here from the Caribbean, where they lived and worked for many years as owners of an island restaurant called Donovan’s Reef. Jim has family ties to the area, and they have returned to settle in Hancock where “the river and charm of the village enhances our creative endeavors.”
Laura McManus says of their decision to open the combination gallery and kitchen, “We decided to open a cafe along with the art shop and gallery because it is a natural extension of what we do. We’re happy to be in Hancock and hope to bring a warm, good feeling, creative environment and some fresh, ‘farm-to-table’ food to the people who live here year round as well as to the tourists visiting the area.”
On a typical day at the Campton’s, you’ll be warmly greeted by Jim, Laura, and Jim’s brother Bob. “The atmosphere is incredibly inviting and comfortable, the artwork is fabulous, and the food is just delicious. These guys are 100% in their element in what they’re doing here, and it shows” says Hancock Chamber President Nancy Furdock.

Please join us on November 2nd to congratulate Jim and Laura on their new adventure! We wish them much success!
