Stop In For A Frozen Treat At Doc’s Soda Fountain On Illinois’ Historic Route 66
Doc’s Soda Fountain had its start in 1884 as Deck’s Drug Store, which sold groceries, hardware, and drugs, and had a soda fountain. At that time, it was owned by Lewis C. Deck and B.F. Clark until several years later when Deck became the sole owner. Through three generations of the Deck family and 117 years later, Deck’s was closed and the building was sold in 2007 to Bob and Renae Ernst. They called the new business Doc’s Soda Fountain which serves food, soda (of course), sweet desserts, and frozen treats.
