It opened in 1917, in this location. It is housed in North Little Rock's oldest commercial building, which held two other pharmacies, beginning in 1887.

Who knows how much longer the Argenta Drug Company will be there?

And actually, it wasn't even a full day. But I was in high cotton...and the weather was absolutely delightful.

My brother-in-law called me early in the week to see if I wanted to go to Pine Bluff with him and his parents to go find some family graves at a cemetery.

Pfffttt...I have never willingly passed up an opportunity to go graving. Especially when it's a cemetery that's new to me.

While we were at it, we also stopped at the Jefferson County Historical Society's museum in the old train depot, and ran over to the Jefferson County Library to check out some old news clippings in their genealogy section.

And then stopped at one of my favorite cemeteries on the way back, where he also has relatives buried.

I think his parents will sleep well tonight.
So while we were cruising about town, I got him to stop and let me take photos of some very nice murals depicting historic Pine Bluff.

This was one of them...

One panel at the end of the mural says the scene is Main Street Pine Bluff in 1888.

The view looking down the street at the Jefferson County Courthouse, which looks much the same today.

At the other end of the mural, there is a depiction of the Culpepper family's drugstore.

Just *love* these kinds of outings...

The journey is good.

Namaste.
