Soda Fountains of Kansas

Picture1The Gridley Branch will be welcoming Cindy Higgins from the Kansas Humanities Council on November 10th at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the soda fountains of Kansas. “Most every early Kansas pharmacy sooner or later installed a soda fountain stocked with sugar-laced tonics and fizzy cure-alls invented by the local pharmacist and served by a fast-moving, slang-talking soda jerk,” says KHC presenter Cindy Higgins.

There are still many people that partake in these enjoyable refreshments. “Serving an updated menu, several soda fountains remain in Kansas today, and some nationwide offer innovative artisanal treats reminiscent of the fountains’ original offerings,” she says.

Join them to learn more about the history behind soda fountains of Kansas.
