THE LYMAN BUILDING
AT 425 RIVER ST.
Dedicated as the Russell Memorial Building, this structure remains as it was in 1905. The A.H. Lyman Drug Co. was the consolidation of three of Manistee's early drug companies. The A.H. Lyman Co. was the largest drug company north of Grand Rapids by 1890. In 1892 the store expanded and took over 425 River and included a school book department. The business continued at this location after the death of A.H. in 1896 under a corporation of employees headed by F.W. White. The druggist portion of the store closed when Mr. White died in 1951. The school book department continued until 1957. In 1960, the White family gave the building to the museum. A special drug exhibit is kept in remembrance of the store's earlier history.
