Foss Drugstore

Address: 1228 Washington Ave., Golden

Foss Drug sits on the site of the tramway station that brought tourists from Denver to Golden. Henry and Dorothy Foss bought H. Langenhan's drugstore in 1913 and built the current building. Henry and later his son Heinie, expanded their business into a huge emporium. The slogan of the store was, "Where the West shops." On the south side of the building is a mural painted by Robert Dafford, depicting historic Golden.
