Oldest Drug Store-Soda Fountain in Mississippi

Borroum's Drug Store -- Friendly service, and had a jerked soda.

Snake oil and such.

Borroum's Drug Store

You really need to order the slugburger. My two boys (who are fairly picky eaters) kept asking Dad for another bite. All of the ice cream offerings are delicious and huge! There is an amazing display of Civil War, Native American, and other artifacts all over the store.

Park anywhere on the street.

Borroum's claims to have been operated by the same family business since the end of Civil War, so it probably has accumulated a mountain of choice old things.

Borroum Drug Store.

Oldest Drug Store-Soda Fountain in Mississippi

Borroum's is the Oldest operating drug store and soda fountain in the state of Mississippi. Founded in 1865...still looks the same! They serve old time sodas at a soda fountain counter. Lots of fun...takes you back to yesteryear! This soda fountain/ drug store is still owned by the same family. Best burgers and shakes in Mississippi.
