The Full Story
About The Drug Store
The Drug Store was first established in 1913 inside Hotel Limpia, serving as a central hub for the community to obtain their newspapers, receive medical attention, purchase medicine, and enjoy a refreshing drink from the fountain.
In 1942, C.R. Fryar and his wife purchased the store from Dr. and Mrs. Eaton, and eight years later, they moved the business to its current location across the street.
By the early 1980s, new owners took over and expanded the building to include a hotel.
While no longer having a resident doctor, the Drug Store evolved into a full-service restaurant and hotel while maintaining its 22-foot antique soda fountain.
Today the Drug Store is a locally owned business.
With your support we have transformed the previous restaurant space into a lounge for hotel guests only.
We continue to invest in modernizing the Drug Store hotel while keeping it's classic 1950's charm.
