1. Hobbs Drug Store Marker
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.

in almost every neighborhood in the City of St. Louis (and most inner-ring suburbs as well), cast iron storefronts offer a glimpse into St. Louis’ once booming architectural iron industry. Ranging from purely functional to elaborately ornamented, and from lovingly cared for to all but forgotten, these architectural elements reflect the diversity and character of St. Louis and its neighborhoods.
