This repository of suppositories and other early remedies salutes not only the area’s pharmaceutical history but recognizes Foress B. Lillie, a participant in the Land Run and early day pharmacist. Lillie helped found the Oklahoma Pharmaceutical Association in 1895 and held certificate #1 as a practicing pharmacist in Oklahoma. Travel back in time at the Oklahoma Frontier Drugstore Museum.
Take time to read labels and marvel at the fact that any of our ancestors lived long enough to procreate! The museum holds one of the finest collections of patent medicines in the U.S., a good part of it dedicated to those who suffered from upset stomachs, dyspepsia, wind and a host of other ailments too earthy to mention.
The old-fashioned soda fountain doesn’t work, but you can purchase a cold bottle of cream soda or sarsaparilla here.
Admission is free – but a donation is requested.
