These prescriptions were filled and dispensed by Mr. AG Northcraft established a pharmacy in Abilene in 1970 in a little room just north of Nelson’s Grocery Store on South Cedar Street. He closed the grocery component of the operation and expanded the pharmacy and in 1873, he added an extra room – made this the pharmacy and once again sold groceries in the remaining area just as before. From 1878-1879 the practice grew and he built a new separate building for the pharmacy. This became the
well-known and prosperous Northcraft Drug House. Respected for honesty & integrity, Northcraft quickly became well known all over the state and was considered one of Kansas' most successful druggists.
