1. Union Drug Store Marker
Inscription.  From a log cabin built in 1859 as Wallis Blacksmith Shop, the current structure (1925) was built as Union Drug Store and operated by Archie Frost (for over 50 years) and Sam Rowan. Popeye Gentry's Watch Repair was in the back of the drug store. Mr. Joyce Houston purchased the drug store in the early 1950's. Later owned and operated by Gentry & Collins as a pharmacy and gift store. Home of the "Roundtable" since the early 1970's.
