William E. Danhauer Sr. opened the store in 1904 at the corner of 4th and Frederica streets in Owensboro. At the age of 47, he married and fathered six sons. Many years later, he was joined by his sons James and William Jr. (Bill) who took over as partners after his death. Bill's son Jeff joined the family business in 1981, taking over for James. Bill and Jeff continue to run the store today. Danhauer's is best known for its family name and family tradition. When William Danhauer started in 1904, there had been many unsuccessful businesses in that location including a bowling alley, another pharmacy, and a saloon. The odds were also against Danhauer's because there were more than eight other drug stores in early downtown Owensboro. Medication was rather simple in Danhauer's early days, but as pharmaceutical technology so did Danhauer's. William Danhauer Sr. originally started making all drugs by hand until World War II when companies began offering capsulized medications for the infantries. This form of medication proved beneficial to civilians in the states as well, however, Danhauer's still makes custom compounds as needed today.
