Meigs Pharmacy

Shirley Gassett notes that this was originally a bus station and then a gas station, before it was Meigs Pharmacy. The architectural style definitely supports that history and if the red stripes on the awning are original it was probably affiliated with Trailways. All conjecture on my part. She and her husband made it into a home after operating a restaurant here for a time. Most remember it as Meigs Pharmacy, though. It’s obviously had lots of uses over the years. Angela Fields writes: I worked there in high school. The original pharmacist was Mims Aultman. He and his wife, Mable, lived next door. After he retired, Gilbert Lewis in Pelham bought it.

Meigs Grocery is located on the left. (As of 2016, I don’t know if it’s still open, but it was amazing to find a working grocery store in an old downtown like this one).
