building permit first Searcy AR Person 

Interesting!  Building permit from Searcy AR. 1948

This old building permit has been loaned to me by Sherry Person, whose father was Colonel Ivan Quattlebaum who collected everything, and whose husband was Leon Person who also collected lots of things.  She has a store of old and historic items and is willing to share them for this blog. 

On the back of this old document is handwritten, "First building permit made in Searcy."  It was made out to Simon Person for a building to be constructed on Lots 46 and 47 Block Moore's Subdivision Watkins and Quarles Addition.  It was signed by Mayor B. L. Oliver and another person whose signature I can't make out.  It had to be finished by July 15th 1948. 

I wonder if the building is still there?

Don, that seems to be an improvement but without as much personality.  LOL
