Inscription. When Dr. C.H. Jones erected this building as his drugstore in 1909 doctors dispensed their own medicine. Customers visited the soda fountain while awaiting their medicine.

D.H. “Doc” Lipscomb opened Lipscomb’s Drugstore here in 1922. Using mortar and pestle to grind ingredients, he added liquid and rolled out sheets, which he cut into sections and rolled into pills.

Woody’s Barber Shop has operated continuously since 1926.
The building has housed real estate offices in recent years.
