A. W. Scott’s Pharmacy,
Poudre Valley National Bank
101 S. College Avenue
There are photos of the A. W. Scott building, but I need to find something I can post here. … Or perhaps I’ll post a photo of how it looks now.
A. W. Scott’s pharmacy had been located at 115 E. Mountain Avenue until it moved to this location at 101 S. College around 1910. The building extended front College to the alley. It had an elegant cornice that peaked at the center with decorative molding. The front windows, facing College Avenue, were arched. Along the W. Mountain Avenue side of the building, the second story contained several windows, but the windows on the first story were small and high, probably to provide light without being blocked by the cabinetry inside the building.
In the September 3rd, 1915 Weekly Courier, it was anounced that the Poudre Valley National Bank would move into A. W. Scott’s pharmacy building and that Scott would move his pharmacy to “the Scott building now occupied by the Fort Collins Furniture store.” It was estimated that the changes required to the buildings would take about a year to complete.
On September 1st, 1916, the Weekly Courier announced, “NUMBER OF CHANGES SCHEDULED The A. W. Scott Drug company will soon be ready to move into its elegant new quarters, some of the heavy goods being already taken to the new location. The Poudre Valley National bank will at once take possession of the drug company’s old quarters and hopes within sixty days to have all alterations and improvements made so they can move into Scotts present location.”
