Tell Us What Makes Your Town Unique:

Our own little piece of History. Girard has quite a bit of history behind it. The people of Girard take pride in their history as well. Doc's Soda Fountain is a prime example of that. It was originally a pharmacy that was built in the 1880's and was in operated by the same family for 3 generations. They have now converted it into a Pharmacy museum and soda fountain. The pharmacy had the soda fountain installed in the 50s and it is all still orginal to the shop. Everyday kids come in for the nickel and dime candies, a hand made soda, hand dipped milk shake, or fresh baked desserts. To top it all off, Doc's Soda Fountain is on Historic Route 66. In Girard we love to preserve every little bit of history we can and this is our own preservation... Doc's Soda Fountain. If you are looking for nostalgia or good conversation from down home folks.. Doc's is the place to be. The original pharmacy owners are here everyday for a little history on the place. This is what makes Girard the Best Town!
