McGill Drugstore


The McGill Drugstore is basically a large time capsule with products still on the shelves that date back to the 1950s. The terra-cotta tile soda fountain bar was built in 1930. It will seat you right up to one of the only three working soda fountains in White Pine County.


The White Pine Public Museum intends to operate the drugstore as a free, public museum dedicated to preserving the small town drugstore/ pharmacy/soda fountain era.


The McGill Drugstore stands on the east side of U.S.93 in downtown McGill, 12 miles north of Ely.


The store is open by appointment only and private tours are gladly given.


Please call ahead!
