This Old School Soda Fountain In Nebraska Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

The combination pharmacy and soda fountain was popular from the early 1800s all the way through the 1950s or so. Since then, pre-packaged soft drinks and self-service drugstores have made these historic gems all but extinct. A special few have survived, and a handful of those are in Nebraska. In Arapahoe, one pharmacy/soda fountain has been going strong within the same family for more than 80 years.
