This picture was a few years back as you can see by the car, the hair styles and the waist top jeans. In fact, the house had wrought iron trim and short windows, also a thing of the past. But I love it because it showed mother and daughter looking like good pals under a huge oak tree that used to...
The ladies in Searcy loved the Ideal Shop.  It was located on Spring Street and displayed the latest fashions in the windows.  This 1965 yearbook picture shows what was the ultimate.  Women wore gloves and hats!  And they tried to have a purse that matched the outfit.  Jewelry was sparse but cert...
Now that the address for our new RE/MAX Advantage home is 200 W Mulberry we might wonder what came before us so when we see a picture that has the Mulberry name under it we linger.  Here's one that I just found in my collection and it says 209 E Mulberry.  Pretty close neighbors!Then I searched m...
It is gone!  Torn down!  I had to go to the internet to find this final picture of the building that once housed McDonald's in Searcy AR.We were one proud city when McDonald's was brought to Searcy and placed at 1707 East Race Street.  The building was lovely with a play place for kids, lots of p...
This is a great old photo of Truman Baker, who owned the Chevrolet dealership in Searcy AR for many years.  He was also Highway Commissioner for years, a very important appointed position.  So look at the contrast in the dress of these two men.  Mr. Baker in a spiffy suit and fancy shoes and the ...
Read this if you can!I have just had a need for a document in order to sell property to a town.  The town was incorporated in 1892 and this document has been on record at the Secretary of State's office since then.  The town would have once had a copy, no doubt, but we couldn't find it.  Bingo!  ...
I found this old card on ebay and added it to my collection.  However, I am unable to figure out where exactly it was.  It says Hy 64 & 67 so that must have been an intersection.  I have not done a real search yet because it seems that highways change.  I prefer asking the Sleuths to give me thei...
Small schools did not have the funds to put out yearbooks.  At least that was my experience in a tiny school in Georgia.  They did, however, try to take a yearly picture of the classes.  My guess is that this picture was just that.....the yearly picture.  Boys must have been told to wear a tie an...
The invitation came through email, something that would never have been dreamed about when this house was built.  The house is called the Kerr-Booth house and is located at the corner of Pecan and Center at 611 W Center.  It is Queen Anne style and  was built in 1890.  So I drove up not in a hors...
I did a blog several years ago with this old postcard on the blog.  I had to ask the Searcy history experts where it was and they told me.  It is on the corner of Elm and Mulberry and we are now neighbors.  RE/MAX Advantage has moved to our brand new building at 200 W Mulberry and this little bui...
