The builidng is known as the historic Pabst building. In territorial days of Ponca City it was a saloon. The first building was destroyed by the 1900 fire and was probably in the brick configuration now standing. The size of the building and its central location downtown suggests the prominence of saloon life in the early community.

When Prohibition came with statehood in 1907, the saloon closed and the building found other tenants, ultimately winding up as the location of Cuzalina’s Pharmacy.

Although altered in places, the crenelated cornice still marks its origins as a brewery or saloon, the institutions that such work is generally associated with.
