Dispensing medicine and history
After 108 years in the same location, East End Drug still maintains a ’50s aura

Safely tucked away in the basement of East End Drug in Jefferson City were the original stools to the soda fountain counter.
Owners Darryl and Connie Hubble discovered them during their renovations to the corner lot at Lafayette and East High streets several years ago.
For the 21st century owners, the stools were a neat find that would help re-create the 1950s-era look, along with the Vitrolite moss-green glass and checkerboard floor tile.
