Place of Origin

Maker St. Joseph's

Maker Details St. Joseph was founded in 1887 by a Bavarian immigrant, Leopold Gerstle. Leopold started his business in a small drug store in Bluff City, Tennessee, the Gerstle Medicine Co., which was the forerunner of what was to become the St. Joseph Medicine Co. Itís believed that Leopold spent some time in St. Joseph, Missouri, prior to settling in Tennessee and combined with that, he was also likely inspired by St. Joseph, patron saint of families, children and the sick. http://stjosephaspirin.com/about-us/
