1. The Henderson Block Marker
Inscription.

Built by Henry Fawcett and A.B. Copp in 1900, this block was the home of the Sackville Book Store, owned by W.R. Goodwin until 1906, and then also a drugstore operated by W.R. Rodd, a druggist and optician.

For a time, it was known as the Fawcett-Copp Block, named after the two men who had it built.

In 1912, the Block was purchased by R.G. Henderson, who established Henderson's Drug Store, thus resulting in the current name, Henderson Block.
 
Erected 1999 by the Town of Sackville.
