City Drug Store Building
221-223 East Main Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
W. T. Courtney, druggist, occupied at least half of this vernacular-style building in the 1850s. In 1858, Dr. E. Warfield purchased The City Drug Store and continued operation of the store through the early 1860s. By 1886, a grocery occupied the entire building. Later uses of the structure were a furniture store, a pipe shop, and a tailor. Into the 20th century, the storefront had been abandoned and the building was being used as apartments as early as 1907. The Howard Apartments, as it was called at the time, remained in existence into the early 1950s. After a short period of time of housing an insurance company and an advertising agency, the building reverted back into apartments.
