MoP Depot Searcy AR 1978 then and now

Postcard on ebay

The top picture is a postcard that is for sale right now on ebay and the building appears to be in great shape.  I don't think trains were anywhere near it in 1978 but it is called the MoP depot, there is an old railroad track on the side in the top picture, and it is in Searcy, AR. 

Nosy me. What does it look like now?  The second picture shows a more recent view.  Looks as if its days are numbered.

It is located on South Main if you'd like to drive by.  Perhaps the city of Searcy could try to restore it and preserve it as a historic building.

Morning Barbara.

Looking at the old photo compared to the current one, I agree, the structure is in it's final stages.

It would be wonderful if Searcy could restore the building.  It would make a great little history center!

Hello Barbara - while some may wonder about the the state and any upcoming plans of the MoP Depot, I wonder about knowing more about the building and the site prior to 1978.

James, it does not look good.  Hopefully, someone will care.

Myrl, a little train museum would be nice but there is a shortage of parking.

Michael, one of the Searcy Sleuths, said that it is still owned by Union Pacific, the railroad company.

I have a large collection of post cards accumulated from every place I have lived. I use a few in my books. Some I never saw another one. 

All the best.
