Dr. Charles B. Turner


Company Names, addresses, dates:
  Dr. Charles B. Turner, Snickersville VA

Notes:
Charles B. Turner was born Jan 18, 1858 and died Nov 18, 19141. He lived in Clayton Hall (which is shown in a photograph below), and his office was across the street2.
The Washington and Old Dominion railroad was extended to Snickersville in 1900. To market the area as a mountain resort, the station there was named "Bluemont Station". Later that year, the town name was changed from Snickersville to Bluemont3.
I've heard that a version of the bottle below exists with the name "Bluemont" instead of "Snickersville", but I've neve seen one.
