A Soda Fountain From 1873 Still Exists In Oregon And One Look Will Make You Feel Nostalgic

There’s always something new and interesting to be found in Oregon, but sometimes it’s the old classics that we love the most. Back in the day, most little hometown drug stores had a soda fountain where you could climb up on a swivel stool at the counter and order a milkshake or malt. Most of those little drug stores have been replaced by big chain stores, and the soda fountains are long gone, but there’s one that’s been around since 1873, and you can still visit.
