Brannon's Drug Store

  • 1014 Main St
  • Bastrop, TX 78602
Three generations of the Bell family has owned the building at 1014 Main Street. In March 1913, "Man" Bell purchased the empty lot and constructed the present building, leasing it to Sid Brannon as Brannon's Drug Store. Brannon wrote in his autobiography that L.C. Price began as a clerk and a "soda jerk" and that Price later went to pharmacy school in Galveston. Price continued to work for Brannon as a druggist. About 1944, Sid Brannon retired, and L.C. Price became proprietor of the store (renamed L.C. Price's Drug Store) until his retirement in about 1965. Brannon had owned the business over 30 years and Price was either an employee or owner for more than half a century.
