Penn's Park General Store Complex, also known as the Gaines Property, is a historic commercial complex located at Penn's Park, Wrightstown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is south of the Penns Park Historic District. The complex consists of three primary buildings: a farmhouse, store building, and frame bank barn, along with six outbuildings. The farmhouse was built in 1810, and is a 2 1/2-story, six bay, fieldstone rectangular building in the Georgian style. The store building was built in 1836, and is a three-story, three bay by three bay, fieldstone building. The outbuildings consist of a storage shed, wagon building, chicken house, livestock barn, wood shed, and outhouse. The store housed a post office until 1971.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
