About Us

  • James Drug Store was founded by Doc James on Range Avenue in Denham Springs on March 19, 1932. Through the years the drug store served as a community center for various events over the years. During World War II, James Drug Store was a disembarking center for the young men entering the armed forces. For several years after that, it served as the Denham Springs Greyhound Bus station. The store was also the location of the local doctor's office. At the time of Doc James' death, the store was purchased by Herman Crotwell. Crotwell came to work for Doc James in 1957 where he worked until his death.
