Horton’s Drug Store, Athens

Horton’s, across from the Georgia Theatre, has been a downtown Athens institution since W. P. “Doc” Horton, Sr., purchased it from the Reid brothers in 1947, but there has been a corner drugstore at this location since the early 1910s. And in case you were wondering, the neon sign still works.
