Wall's Drug Store

This "Drug store" is unique. It was started in 1931 when the town had 326 people. In order to attract cutomers, Ted Hustead put signs on the nearby "highway" (now I-90) offering free Ice water- a real necessity in the summer in this climate. Business grew and he kept adding on. He sold a cup of coffee for 5 cents (and still does). It became a major attraction in this otherwise desolate countryside. It now covers a full block, has numerous eating rooms, a collection of hundreds of historic photographs of the early west.There are hundreds of original oil paintings handing on the walls and a great collection of Indian artifacts. And the prices of goods are fair!
