Inscription.  Crowley's Soda Fountain and General Store (formerly the Crowley Pharmacy and Soda Fountain) is located in what was once a four-story building that was constructed ca. 1910, and stood for six decades as one of Twin Falls' tallest buildings. First occupied by the Booth Mercantile Company, the building was divided about 1932-33 between Hudson Shoes and Trolinger Drugs. In addition to prescriptions and cosmetics, Trolinger Drugs featured a popular soda fountain, while the two upper floors housed at various times medical doctors, an Air Force recruiting office, a photo studio, the Twin Falls Business College, a genealogical society, and even a dance floor. S. Leslie Crowley bought the Trolinger Drug Store in 1942 but retained the Trolinger name (and soda fountain) until 1967 when it became Crowley Pharmacy. The two upper floors were removed in 1969. Four generations of Crowleys have worked at the Soda Fountain, continuing a business tradition rich in nostalgia
