Historic Downtown La Grange, Part 2

La Grange Depot


















Once the old McDowell Drug Store, this building has been divided into three separate spaces.  Housed here are
the local art gallery, a yarn store, and a tattoo parlor.



My grandfather, Frank L. Lee, worked in McDowell Drug Store when he was a teenager.  In fact, that's him with Mr.
D. C. McDowell and another clerk in the painting on the sidewalk in front of the old drug store.  Mr. McDowell was a
wonderful mentor and teacher to my grandfather who, along with his two younger brothers, became a pharmacist
and drug store owner himself.
