Our History

The Dedman Drugstore building was built around 1865 and served as an apothecary, general store and gathering spot for the good folks of Harrodstown (as it was known back then). Here you'll still find original curved glass display cases, glass front cherry cabinetry, old tile and oak floors, leaded glass and pressed tin ceilings.
After a fire in the early 1900's, the front of the building was rebuilt and a soda fountain was added where kids young and old would sit and enjoy an egg cream or fruity phosphate. The old drug store changed hands a few times but continued in operation until the mid 1980's. It sat empty until 2002 when our local historic preservation group, James Harrod Trust purchased the structure and began a much needed restoration process.
In 2006, Kentucky Fudge Company moved in and opened the building up as a restaurant, bakery and fudge shop. We expanded in 2012 into an adjacent building adding 55 additional seats, a pub and outdoor seating. This cool old space is waiting for you. We love it here and we hope you will too.
