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.

Historic Downtown La Grange, Part 1

La Grange, Oldham County
Population in 2013:  8,358

La Grange is a true railroad town.  Railroad tracks run right down the middle of
Main Street, and trains pass through town several times a day.

Lots of historic buildings are now home to great local businesses.

Several historic homes are also part of downtown La Grange.

My great grandparents, Georgia Gill and Dr. G. O. Lee, called La Grange home from about 1890-1950.  Their home, part of
which was my grandfather's dental office, was on Main Street.  The house is still there as is this sidewalk marker for
the old dental office.
