A. P. Carter Store is a historic general store museum located at Maces Spring, Scott County, Virginia. It was built in 1945, and is a one-story, frame building with a cross-gable roof. The store is most notable for its association with the Carter Family, a traditional American folk music group that recorded between 1927 and 1956. It was occupied by a store operated by Alvin Pleasant "A.P." Delaney Carter's (1891-1960).[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[2] It is now open weekly before concerts as a museum operated by the Carter Family Fold.
