Sherry Snow on December 31, 2015 published a special article in the Searcy Daily Citizen regarding a club called the Doniphan Chicks,  a group of ladies who don't want the town of  Doniphan to be forgotten.  The article says that the little town once had three hotels or boarding houses, an elemen...
We are beginning a new year.  2016!  2015 surely went by in a hurry and we are all glad to start anew.Look back, however, to how it used to be.  I have so many old pictures on my computer and I have written so many blogs that I forget what I have already published on this blog.  But this old buil...
This is a wonderful old photograph and on the back it says, "Belmont Hotel Camp Pike."  A little research shows that this was near a military base called Camp Pike.  In one news item on line I found this picture which is obviously the front of this building. Here is the article that comes with th...
Dogs now seem to have the run of the house.....the whole restrictions.  Several years ago, the houses had what we called a "dog run" and it was an open hall in the middle of the house.  Here's what wikipedia says about this style house.The dogtrot, also known as a breezeway house, d...
If you have not been to an open house at Pioneer Village in Searcy AR, you must plan to go.  The village, put together by the Historical Society, has loads of great items.

We really do forget in a hurry and I'll bet most of you have forgotten this building and where it was located in Searcy AR.  It is nice to have two types of blog readers.  The first type is the group who no longer lives in Searcy.  They grew up here, graduated, married, moved, but still have fond...
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...
