Like the City Hall next door, the Lilly Drug Company building is one of the few to have survived a fire in 1920 which destroyed most of the commercial core of Lilly.

Blakely Humber and Amy Thompson note that this later served as their grandfather’s (Claude Hugh Murray, d. 1965) barber shop.

The structure at left (above) was once a livery stable. I’m not sure as to the functions of the others, but they likely date to the late-19th or early-20th century.

This may be antebellum, but even if not, it’s a significant example of Greek Revival commercial architecture. It’s obviously been modified; I hope to learn more.
