Step back in time as you get acquainted with our historic building, formerly known as Sloan’s Drug Store, located in the heart of downtown Spindale. Built in the 1920’s this 3500 square foot space was remodeled by the owners and many local craftsmen. The panels on the bar were doors from the owner’s first home in Forest City, and the bar top came from the floor of the old Harris School. The 1938 Simplex that hangs over the kitchen window was contributed by the Butler family, and the Master Clock originated from Cone Mills. The hallway lights were obtained before demolition at Appalachian State University and many of the photographs were donated by the families of the Stonecutter Foundation and the old Spindale Sun.
