Discover the Timeless Charm of Menges & Curtis

A visit to Menges & Curtis Apothecary is a delight for casual shoppers, tourists, and prescription compound patients alike.

Once known as Wolcott and Mingay, our pharmacy has proudly served the Saratoga Springs community since 1860.  In 1871, Mr. Mingay decided to move his pharmacy from its former location on lower Broadway to its current location in the now historic Ainsworth Building at the center of town.

Visitors will be charmed by an array of old photographs of the original site and its staff, antique pharmacy cabinetry and glassware, as well as antiquated tools of the trade on display. In some ways, the apothecary is a time capsule. Indeed, it still largely looks and feels as though one has stepped into a Victorian-era Chemist’s Shoppe. And though the soda fountain no longer serves up ice cream and other treats, the apothecary still feels like a gathering place.
