Founded in 1911, Howes Drug & Medical is one of the oldest pharmacies in Connecticut. With over 100 years in business, it is a familiar landmark and a part of Connecticut's history. Originally owned by John T. Howes, the store was always in Milford's center but located a few blocks from its present location. In the early 1950s, Howes Drug & Medical moved to its current location on the green at 78 Broad Street.
