Soda Fountain

There is one more place you must go if you go to Abilene, KS.


You don’t find old-fashioned soda fountains much anymore.  However, there are some great places in Kansas, maybe near you that you can find one.  Check here for more details about soda-fountains near you.


Mom and I went to “Bankes Drug, 304 N. Broadway. 785.263.4330. Open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. It’s a 1920s seven-stool soda fountain with round mirror and 1972 Formica counter top.” -Source:Kansas Sampler Foundation

If you want a (I am going to try on the names someone who really knows can correct me) Green River, Brown Cow, Cherry Ice Cream Soda, or just a vanilla cone, a soda fountain is the place to go.
