Opened by James Tuft on May 9, 1895, the Sherman Area Pharmacy continues to honor its long legacy, while maintaining modern industry standards and incorporating new technologies. Refreshed by Pharmacist Christan Nyweide in 2015, the Pharmacy stands ready to write a new chapter for years to come.
Though the Pharmacy may have changed hands several times throughout its life, many signatures of the building live on. A large mirror along the main entrance, for example, has seen more than 120 years of history cross the threshold, while the original tin ceiling tiles, as well as several pieces of the original pharmacy and later ice cream bar remain intact. The character of the building alone is worth a visit!
