Significance: The Douglas Drug Store, built ca. 1853, is typical of many nineteenth-century commercial structures still standing in downtown Brownsville. Its box-like form is decorated with simple brick dentils on a straight parapet which extends slightly above the roof line. Numerous commercial establishments have been located here, including William Douglas' "New Drug Store," and J. L. Putegnat's Botica del Leon.
