  I've driven these streets so many times!  I knew that College Street sorta dead-ended at W. Race and then there was a small amount of North College off W. Academy.  But I am just now possibly understanding why. These two buildings were probably located here at the end of N. College.    Dr. Ray ...

This picture reminded me so much of the way things were as I was growing up.  I bought it for just that reason. There are 5 women standing together.  The one on the left has her apron on?  Or is that just the style of the dress? The second from the left looks like the original career girl.  She i...

This picture of the Corner of 3 rd and Main is a good example of how towns looked a long time ago. Imagine having to cross those dirt streets and if you were a woman, in a long dragging skirt.  The buildings look fragile but there seems to be electricity if those are telephone poles. This one of...

Mr. Google, who must be a big procrastinator, and that works in our favor, still has this image of the old filling station located on Main Street in Searcy AR, right across the street from the old Rendezvous. I looked at it often and wondered what it originally looked like but no post cards or pi...

Look at the size of this strawberry farm! My understanding is that young people from White County Arkansas used to spend their summer months in strawberry fields such as this one picking the berries and making a little spending money. Since I grew up in Georgia working in tobacco fields of this ...

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about a once-grand house having a fire and that it was probably beyond saving. I was right.  It is gone.  Remember this one. Here is the Mr. Google view.....bless him for saving some of these old pictures for years.  It takes him a good while to do a follow-up drive...

This card shows the White County court house in 1908 before the wings were added and before the trees were big and before the street was paved and before horseless carriages were parked all the way around it. It shows old buildings on the West side of the square and a little iron fence around th...

I had to be in Judsonia so I decided to go across the newly opened bridge that connects Judsonia to Kensett and is supposed to save a lot of time for your trip. I met practically no one on the whole trip so it must not be widely used yet. Here's the way it looked as I entered the bridge.  The bri...

We did a blog yesterday showing an old house, worn out but still standing.  It brought back a lot of memories. Don Thompson, Super Sleuth who grew up in Searcy, sent a picture of himself as a kid visiting at a house similar to the one we pictured. I looked at it and thought he was behind the wago...
