With the disappearance of the local pharmacy and soda fountain in our world today, the City Drug Store Museum in Roxton, Texas preserves an example of a early 1900s drug store. The City Drug Store Museum takes the visitor back to the time when pharmacists compounded their medicines, when a doctor's office was in the back of the store, and when a person could get a cherry coke at the marble soda fountain as he left!
