The James Pharmacy is a historic building at 2 Pennywise Lane in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. It is a two story wood frame structure, built in an evolutionary fashion beginning c. 1820. The building combines a residential space and a retail one, and has a predominantly Colonial Revival character now. This character is largely due to alterations made by Anna James, the owner of the pharmacy 1918-44. Anna James (1886-1977) was the first African-American woman pharmacist in the state, and was a well-known local fixture of the community. It is also the birthplace and childhood home of author Ann Petry, who was James' niece.
