OK, Searcy Sleuths, here's a new one!  What happened to the O.K. Taxi and Cafe that was operating in Searcy AR in 1951. This photo was in the 1951 Harding Petit Jean and shows a couple beside a cab with the advertisement saying they were enjoying a coke in the friendly atmosphere of the O.K. Cafe...
      This is an unbelievably beautiful home that is now on the market in Searcy AR.  REALTORS toured it this morning and we came away in a state of awe because it is so lovely and so well maintained.  When I noticed that it was on the market my memories came back.  I had done a blog on that part...
Remember this popular grocery store?It is no longer standing but it is a fond memory for so many Searcy folks.  This picture was in the 1972 Harding Petit Jean and it brings back so many memories.  Volkswagens!  They were loved and so many people had them.  Most of them may be in other countries ...
Bee Rock, Searcy ARKTempted?  Yes, I am tempted to try to buy this old post card that is on ebay right now.  I have never seen a postcard featuring  Bee Rock in Searcy, Arkansas.  Yes, I have heard of Bee Rock, and I remember warning my kids NOT to go to that spot and try climbing rocks.  I have,...
After the tornado.While listing a property recently, I saw this old picture just laying on the bookcase.  The back of it says March 1952.  Jim & Julian McFadden.  I quickly asked if I could borrow it and share on this blog.  The owner gave me permission.  It is just a snapshot but shows the devas...
Searcy Daily Citizen 1929I bought this picture at a recent estate sale.  I guess I'm a sucker for old pictures.  This one was framed and on the back of the frame were the names of the picture's people.  It may be hard to figure out who is who and what they are near because we probably don't have ...
A happy child at Harmony.Working in real estate brings new friends.  My blog has several Searcy Sleuths as neighbors who help me track Searcy news, myths, and history.  They also provide great pictures for sharing.  The above picture comes as a result of my trying to track the history of 9.26 acr...
 A BEAUTIFUL STORYOnce upon a time there was a little blonde girl who was about 5 years old AND she was still a thumb-sucker.  The little blonde girl's mom and dad begged and pleaded and threatened but it did no good.  She went to bed at night and loved that thumb.BUT, the little blond girl watch...
Our blog buddy, Anita Hart Fuller, has just been shocked when a friend of hers brought out this old item.  She, of course, wants to share it with all of our Searcy Sleuths.  She said the friend said it was an old iron which operated with gasoline!Gasoline!  No wonder I never saw one of these at m...
Note this parade, dated 1949, going beside what is now Quattlebaum Music building.  Streets were brick, and the building seemed to have a drive up or walk up window for food and drinks.  How things have changed.  Here is the 2018 picture of that building.The building has been decorated with a mur...
