Dedication ceremony for downtown F.P. May mural set for Saturday

A dedication ceremony of the restored F.P. May advertising sign will be held on Saturday, April 15, beginning at 10 a.m.

The mural is located at 10 N. Adams Street in Quincy, which is also where the ceremony will be held.

Remains of the original 1910 F.P. May Drug Company sign was uncovered last year during a façade cleaning. Quincy Main Street contacted descendants of F.P. May who paid for the restoration of the sign.

F.P. May was a Quincy institution as a citizen, historian, and local druggist.

“Frank May’s Quick Digestive Tonic” was emblazoned on the building’s parapet for years and at one time, the F.P. May Drug Store had the distinction of being Quincy’s oldest business and the oldest drug store in Florida, a press release from Quincy Main Street says.

Founded in 1876, the drug store’s doors were closed in 1986, after a 110-year run.

Classic cars from the Tallahassee Vintage Car Club, the Quincy Car Club and the Corvette Club will also be on view during the festivities, and downtown Quincy restaurants and “Sweet Shops” will all be open for coffee and refreshments.
