A Pictorial Step Back to the 1900's in Rutherford County

1/12
In the 1930’s and 40’s the drug store soda fountain was a feature and gathering place for the town folk. This soda fountain was located in the Buchanan and Tarpley Drugstore. The Murfreesboro area embraced this business for nearly 5o years before closing in the 1980's. Many remember the ice cream toss. The person dipping the ice cream would toss it into the air. If it missed the cone, then the customer got it free.
