Treatment for illness and the maintenance of good health were important for the success of a new community.


Early pharmacists compounded prescription medicine with mortars and pestles, made their own pills, and sold popular patent medicines, which promised to cure a variety of ills.

Francis M. Carlock operated his dray and transfer business out of this building, which originally stood on 18th Street in downtown Bakersfield. A dray is a two- or four-wheeled wagon used for transporting heavy loads or objects such as large machines.

Frances M. Carlock's daughter, Harriet Carlock, donated this building in 1955.
