Long Description:

"221 South Avenue. Stancill Drug Store. ca. 1890
This is a wide two-story red brick commercial building, with two shop spaces. It sits at the corner of South and McDaniel, facing east to South Avenue. It has a wide ground floor storefront and a row of four round-arched windows in the second floor of the facade. The upper part of the facade bears signs of having been rebuilt, and an early cornice is no longer in place there. The windows retain early or original, 1/1, arched window sashes.  The ground floor storefront appears to date to the 1930's, at which time this building began serving as the eastern entrance to the Kresge store on the square."- Historic District nomination

The building has been restored in recent years.  It appears half the building is vacant and the other half is used by a photography studio and gallery.
