Dr Pepper Was Invented At This Old General Store In Texas From The 1800s

Dr Pepper is the unofficial drink of Texas — not only because it’s delicious, but also due to the fact that it was invented right here in the Lone Star State. Learn all about its origins, and take a peek inside the museum commemorating the soda with 23 fruit flavors.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Unfortunately, the museum is closed right now due to COVID-19, but keep checking their website or Facebook page to learn of any changes. When businesses can open back up, you can enjoy an old-fashioned Dr Pepper made with pure cane sugar at Old Doc’s Soda Shop in Dublin!
