Where in Carolina Country is This?
The May Where is This photo provided by the Hendersonville TDA features the Coca-Cola mural on the building that houses Mike’s on Main, at 303 North Main St. in downtown Hendersonville. Did you catch the location hint with the Adventure column on the facing page? Most readers didn’t need the hint, having enjoyed a bite to eat at this corner café. The building formerly housed an apothecary and soda shop, Justus Pharmacy, for which the café’s sign pays homage to in the shape of a mortar and pestle. Built in 1900 for Dr. William Hicks Justus, the pharmacy had the first soda fountain in Hendersonville and Mike’s continues the soda fountain tradition, explained reader Jennifer Norris. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Cynthia Hudson of Boone, a Blue Ridge Energy member.
