    The Owl Drug Store and Soda Fountain located on Route 66 has operated from 1901 to 2012, and has the longest antique soda fountain in the state. Once we told the wonderful lady in the anitque store that is next door that our Mom grew up coming to this town often. My Mom remembers the old Owl Drug Store fondly, this nice lady gave us a personal tour. The present owners rent this space out and that last renters moved on, so it was not in operation, but it comes fully equip. What a wonderful tour and to stand where many lives have been touched by this business felt heartful and we were touched by all the history made here. If walls could only talk because you could quite possibly hear my moms, cousins, Uncle, Aunts, and Grandsparents voices. I cannot express the joy to see and feel this simple place.

    Built in 1910, the Boggs Hotels served the town and Route 66 travelers for many years. I don't have the whole history of this building, but is awaiting to be put on the registry of historic places.

    Built in 1905, this was the first City Hall of Sayre. Then it became the First National Bank for many years. Now it serves as office space for local businesses.

    We ventured into this wonderful store to ask some local folks directions to Delhi. We ended up chatting up a storm about the whole town and the things that are happening. It is good to know this town still lives and there are many who are going to ensure the town does not fall into disrepair. We were curious about the Owl Rexal Drug Store next door, so she gave us a tour since it was for rent again.

    After the tour we returned to the antique store and explored this building too. This neat building has its history too. They believe it was a movie theatre at one time because of all the movie projectors and other types of equipement they found in the attic. We purchased a couple of things that I have on my walls at work. What a neat adventure.
