Administrative history

McKeen's Drug Store was located on Main Street, Woodstock, Carleton County, New Brunswick, and was operating in the early twentieth century. The store sold medicines and pharmaceuticals through orders and prescriptions written by Carleton County physicians for their patients. By the mid-twentieth century, C. Allen Poole was the drug store's proprietor and pharmacist. From that date, many customers, in their correspondence, referred to the store as Poole's Drug Store.
