Baxter Springs Historic Walking Tour

On 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.

In 1900, Kane became one of he founders of the Baxter National Bank. In this century the building housed the Barnes Drug Store in the 1920s and the Reed Drug Store in the 1950s.
