An old fashioned drugstore down to the vintage marble soda fountain, Auburn Drug Company was established in 1896 by James T. Gibson. It was first located on the upper left side of Railroad Street (now Lincoln Way), just below Freeman Hotel. It was moved to the Hink Block, 818 Lincoln Way in 1906. In 1921 Henry Swanson purchased the store and in 1927 he commissioned the building at 815 Lincoln Way where it presently stands. At this site Mr. Swanson developed the recipe for Auburn Drug's famous "Irish Soda." In 1941, Clarence and Amy Reeves became the new owners. In 1974 they sold the store to the present owners, Charles and Patricia Fink. Contained within the walls of this old building are 100 years of pharmacy records and relics.
