Inscription.  A tip of the hat to a bygone era, Hobbs Drug Store was built in 2013 and is designed to be reminiscent of the Soda Shop that flourished in the mid twentieth century. The wrought-iron store front was manufactured by Christopher & Simpson of St. Louis, Missouri around 1870. It was originally used about 20 miles from here, in downtown Martin, Tennessee.
