Oops, I did it again.  I bought another old postcard from ebay.  It shows the South side of Searcy's court square and I find the piano shop of interest.  I can't tell for sure but it is probably Pope's Piano.  See if you can tell. Luke Jones, who wrote historical articles about Searcy before he l...

How little we think about concrete now!  But way back sometime in Searcy Arkansas Mr. T. W. Holston was advertising his Atlas Cement business.  We have very few rotting plank walkways now and even fewer muddy foot paths. Wonder if this was a picture of a house in Searcy Arkansas?  This blotter i...

 Front Street, Kensett Arkansas, probably no longer exists. I searched a map of Kensett, which is a small town of approximately 1900 people just a minute away from Searcy Arkansas, and found no Front Street on the map. I suspect, however, that it was the main drag at some time in the past.  I fo...

  What happened to all the HUD houses for sale?   Anyone who is shopping for a HUD home has noticed that the listings for Arkansas properties on hudhomestore.com have all but disappeared. It happened suddenly, around mid-November, much to the dismay of bargain hunters throughout White County and ...

Dorothy Warden, our historical oracle supreme, does a column in the Searcy Daily Citizen each Saturday and she  mentioned in one of her columns an airplane bungalow at the corner of Fir and Center Streets. I hustled over to that street and saw nothing that looked like an airplane.  Sleuth Anita g...

One can take a nap while waiting for the traffic light at the corner of South Main and Beebe Capps Expressway.  Adding a McDonald's and a Burger King has made this one of the most congested corners in Searcy AR. Instead of a nap today I took a picture of our new building that now occupies the cor...

  I couldn't resist buying this old card on ebay.  Even though I was not around Searcy in the 50's, which is when this picture was taken, I did come on the scene early enough to eat a few times at this old restaurant. The building has just been sold. It is now being worked on and I'm not sure wha...

I took photos of these two streets in one of our old loved subdivisions, Lambert Terrace, in Searcy Arkansas.  When I first started coming to Searcy Arkansas as a new bride the in-laws would say, "Let's go look at the new subdivisions."  They were referring to Lambert Terrace on the West side of ...

The White County Historical Society held its Pioneer Village open on Sunday November 6, 2011 from 1:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m.  I visited the open house and enjoyed seeing the old way of living and rejoiced that we have a lot more comfortable life today. In the old West Point Post Office I met Marilyn S...

I just get so distracted. I go on to the computer and plan to do some really important things and then WHAM! I see some fascinating picture on my computer that I've saved from somewhere.  Look what I ended up drooling over today. It appears the then Governor was making an appearance and Searcy br...
