Historic Star Drug Store in Galveston
From our recent trip to Galveston, we stopped in to the historic Star Drug Store. Our ham and cheese sandwiches were most delicious, topped off by a frosty strawberry shake served up from the old soda fountain. In the early days, the drug store had hooks that were lowered from the ceiling in case of flooding to raise the display cases and cabinets, to keep from getting wet. Read more about our recent visit, and meeting Chili. Chili is well known on the island, and hand makes detailed sand sculptures and spun glass creations for his company. As a native, he can tell you lots of interesting history about Galveston.
