Renfro Drug Company No. 13/ Alexander-Bales Store No. 1 – Camp Bowie

Texas Pacific Coal and Oil Co. purchased this triangular lot flanked by Camp Bowie Boulevard and W. 7th Street in 1928. Construction of their commercial building occurred soon after. First tenants in 1929 of the site were Renfro Drug Co. Store No. 13 and Alexander-Bales Stores of Texas No. 1. Used by a number of retail firms over the years, the structure has been subdivided into five storefronts. The one-story brick building features a Spanish Gothic cast-stone frieze. The Mission style porch appears to be a later addition.
