Ogden in Weber County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Major Drug Company
The front facade has a brick corbeled cornice that is original to the building. While the remainder of the facade had been so altered over time away from the original design to be unrecognizable, the most recent remodeling restored the storefronts so they closely match what existed at the time of construction.
The building’s three storefronts housed many businesses over time including B&B Clothing Store (1910), Star Restaurant (1916), Travelers’ Cafe (1919), Pepares Bros. Grocery (1923), Eagle Café (1923), Newport Soft Drinks (1929), and many others.
At the time of construction Bela Kadish, a well known “business promoter” in Ogden, owned the property.
