Payson Palace Drug Store--Photo of the Day
Payson had several drug stores, they constructed the Payson Palace Drug Store in 1879. In that period of time, many drug stores sold wines and liquors. The Goughs became very prosperous. They owned a great deal of property along Main Street between 200 and 300 South. This area is now part of Payson Memorial Park.
The property was later purchased by Thomas H. Wilson and he constructed his new family home on the site. Later, it became a motel and bus station operated by one of the daughters. Today, we find the law offices of Bill Hansen located in the former home.
