Drug Store

Drug StoreThe Museum’s Drug Store is the place for ice cream, lunch, or a quick snack during your visit, but don’t forget to stroll around and view the store’s artifacts. Historically, the druggist (today’s pharmacologist) would mix raw medical components to create the proper medicine and dosage. Drug stores sold dental preparations, hair brushes/combs, perfumes, cosmetics, tobacco, cigars, school books, and even paint! This recreation of a late 1800’s store has an upstairs level which would house a doctor or lawyer’s office. Today, the second level serves as a men’s and a ladies’ parlor during wedding events.
