1956 dated Searcy AR house and car

I know I have seen this house before but I can't remember where it was located.  Searcy Sleuths, do you remember?  I found this old picture at an estate sale on West Park Avenue in Searcy.  That is the area where so many homes have been removed for Harding's expansions.  So perhaps it was in that area and is no longer there?  One of the Super Sleuths, Don Thompson, knows how to pull up court house information showing how things "used to be."

It is a great picture, though, with an old car that Sleuths will remember the make and year. Bring on the memories!

It looks like the house that was owned at one time by Miss Ellen Key. That would put it close to 204 S. Oak. Torn down and replaced with apartments. She had a double lot on the SE corner of Oak and Pleasure. The lot closest to Pleasure was empty, my parents grew a small garden there when I was growing up in the 60's. Miss Key was quite accomplished, having graduated from Galloway College. She was quite active in the White County Historical Society, including serving as a host/guide at the Searcy museum when it was located in the old library building in Spring Park. She also volunteered at the Pioneer Village when it was at the fairgrounds. Ultimately, she sold the property on Oak and moved to a house a block or so away on Park.

Good morning Barbara.  I can remember my parents owning one of those.  Stick shift on the column, no air conditioning.  Those were the days, carefree and wonderful

Jeff, I remember Miss Key.  She lived in a house that right beside the kindergarten that is on a street near Harding.  I understand that she was a very sharp lady with lots of historic interests.  Thanks for the comment.

James, thanks for stopping by.  I'll take my car that I have now with all its amenities over the old stick shift.  I had a hard time learning to drive with that stick shift.

Don, that is not the house that I remember her living in.  The one I remember was right beside the day care center with the colorful crayon fence.  Perhaps this was the earlier one?

Don, do you think that is the one in the old picture?  I remember her living in the one to the right (in picture above) of the child care center with the crayon fence.

I like the sporty 2 door coupe Barbara S. Duncan . I might be able to sleuth a house in Moorhead MN but that would be the extent of my sleuthing.
