Palace Drug Store
601-603 Main Street

Palace Drug StoreCañon City for over 100 years. Built in 1902 for T.B. Coulter, this commercial building replaced a rundown wooden structure. The new brick structure at 601 Main was the home of Cañon Savings Bank until it failed in 1907 and Mitchell & Egbers Palace Drug Store moved in. The store had a laboratory in the back and a salesroom in the basement.  When the  drug store remodeled in 1913, the owners moved the entrance from the corner of the store to the middle of the south side and added a public drinking fountain on the corner.  Next-door at 603 Main, Smith Mercantile gave way to Cañon Grocery by 1908. Haven’s clothing store opened in 1969 as a high quality women’s ready-to-wear clothing business and later
added a men’s department.
