Baxter Springs Historic Walking TourOn this site, G. G. Gregg established the Chicago Drug Store in 1868, just as the town became a center for the cattle trade. The block of businesses was known as Keenan's Old Stand at that time. The Drug Store carried prescriptive and non-prescriptive medications, paint, oil, glass and fine jewelry. Gregg ran the business until 1895 when he sold to A. R. Kane. The Kane Drug Store also included a jewelry shop and watch repair service.
