Stewart, the pharmacy opened in 1922. Mrs. Stewart was the nation's first African-American woman pharmacist. As pharmacists, Mr. and Mrs. Stewart became involved in their community giving advice and help on employment, housing and food. As a leader in the community, Mrs. Stewart served on many local and national human rights organizations. In 1963 she was appointed to the executive board of UNESCO where she travelled around the world as a goodwill ambassador for the United States. The pharmacy closed in 1945.
