Company History

Founded onOctober 6, 1852 in Philadelphia, PA, APhA today represents 60,000 practicing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, student pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and others interested in advancing the profession. APhA moved into its current location at 2215 Constitution Ave, NW in Washington, DC, in 1934and is the only privately-owned building on the National Mall.The rotunda building was designed by famed architect John Russell Pope, and was built on land deeded to the Association through a land transaction between one of its members and Congress that resulted in the building onthe National Mall and the home of American Pharmacy.An annex was constructed laterand wasdedicated in 1960. The annex has since been demolished to allow for the construction ofa new addition to the original Pope building,which wascompleted in 2009.The Association has a long history of serving as a facilitator and leader among pharmacy organizations. Overtime, APhA became known among pharmacists as the “mother of associations” because it was considered to be largely responsible for the creation of such organizations as the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), the American College of Apothecaries (ACA), the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA).
