Owen Drug Co.

These buildings in the heart of Batesburg-Leesville‘s downtown historic district represent businesses that have long catered to the needs of locals. Carriage companies and apothecaries were vital to towns big and small during the 19th century. And lucky for the people of this small community, Owen Drug Co. is still going strong!

Owen Drug Co. offers a full pharmacy and – best of all – an old-fashioned soda fountain. Here is what the owners have to say:

“When you visit Owen Drug Company, you’re invited to step back in time for a refreshing break at our soda fountain. We have hand-dipped Mayfield ice cream in lots of flavors, fountain sodas, creamy milkshakes, candy and more. Our soda fountain is one of the remaining few, and it’s the perfect place to sit, relax, and enjoy delicious refreshments. And don’t forget to glance up at the original tin ceiling for a feeling of real down home nostalgia.”

Batesburg-Leesville is located in the western portion of Lexington County. Until they united in 1993, Batesburg and Leesville were two separate towns. Over a period of decades, joint ventures between the two towns gradually pointed them in the direction of consolidation.
