1. Keir Medical Building Marker
Inscription. A.S. Keir and C.A. Class erected the building in 1905 for use as a drug store, pharmacy, and soda fountain. Originally a one-story structure, a second floor was added when the building was remodeled in 1927 in the Art Deco style. The colorful tile work on one of the storefronts dates from this period. The second floor was used as professional offices. A.S. Keir retired in 1945 and his son Paul continued the business until it was sold in 1969. In 1993 Keir Durg Store closed its doors after 88 years of business.
