TX-15760 Stephenville Drug Stores


Local drug stores were an important and essential part of the economy and well-being of early Texas towns. This site at the corner of Washington and Belknap streets served as the location of a series of Stephenville drug stores from 1899 until 1994. The original proprietor was F. A. Schnabel, who contracted for this building to be built in October 1897, and hauled the brick for the building from the new brick plant in nearby Thurber. Schnabel operated the business until 1905, when he sold it to Frank S. White. Subsequent owners of the pharmacy were Swan Richardson, Daniel and Louise D'Arcy, Bill Riddick, John Baker, and finally, Eckerd Drug Company.
