Recognize this street?It is a great view from the corner of Arch and Spring looking toward the First Methodist Church. Looking carefully you can see Security Bank on the sign, I believe.  The date is not certain but it must have been several years ago.  Car guys can tell the year by the cars in t...
I consider this a small masterpiece done by our local artist, Terry W Williams, and I had to do some master bargaining to get it from him.  Terry painted this in 1970 and he says it is a portrait of his dad, Nathan Hale Williams from Sunflower Co, Mississippi.  He titled it "My Share of the Crop....
Another old home in Searcy AR for sale!I remember this house.  It was one of my very first listings when I started in real estate. It was probably in the early 80's, so long ago that the on-line county data does not list the name of the owner at that time.  It looks very much the same and is on t...
The portrait of this child is so interesting and appealing.  I bought it years ago and have loved it.  The first thing that I think is that this child was royalty, rich and happy.Then I look at the child's clothing.  Those little shoes have been passed down a few times.  Notice the shoe polish on...
Available on ebay right now is this interesting plate that was probably made in 1959 when Dr. and Mrs. Porter Rodgers were owners of a horse named Rodgers Perfection.  He was trained by Joe Webb who lived and trained in Searcy AR.  I have blogged about this famous horse and trainer before but I h...

Once so many years ago that I can't remember the year,  I mailed my mother something and she, being the suspicious type, took the package into the yard and beat on it till she knew it was not a bomb.Me?  I'm not the su...
This old ad was in a 1956 Searcy AR football program with Searcy Lions battling the Beebe Badgers.  The picture shows Rodger Duncan, son of the personality-plus Po-Dunk whose motto was "What Ole Po-Dunk says it is--it is."  Vernon Duncan was the one who began the firm and all of his children foll...
NEW VIEWS OF THE RIALTO THEATER IN SEARCY AR! I wrote the following blog about 8 years ago.  It was a bit of a plea for keeping the Searcy historic theater around forever.  It seems to be happening!  These are two new pictures of the lovely old building, now being renovated with the front complet...
This picture says Cotton Scene -Union Ware House - Searcy Ark.Obviously the wagons must be arriving with cotton or they have unloaded the cotton and remained browsing around.  The strange thing is each wagon has standing men (drivers I ssume).  I doubt that they drove standing up.  They must have...
A Searcy Sleuth (Anita Hart Fuller) was going through her old photos and found this one.  It shows a handsome man, a pretty little girl and a sturdy brick house.....all from Searcy AR many years ago.  Oh, and two pretty horses!  She figured out who the people were, and I won the argument about wh...
