Remember how much we LOVE the mansion in Judsonia that survived the Judsonia tornado in 1952?Look what we have found.  This picture was in a White County Centennial Edition of The Daily Citizen and White County Citizen that was published in Searcy in August 1936!  It shows the mansion long before...

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...

We can look at this photo and think about how things have changed for the better in the last 100 years.  Imagine traveling those mud streets of Judsonia AR.  This is an old postcard that is on ebay right now.  Price is pretty high so I will not be buying but it would be good for Judsonia to have ...

The huge tornado that destroyed Judsonia AR still lives in the memories of so many people.  It destroyed a thriving town and the town has never recovered completely.  These pictures were loaned to me by a Judsonia resident who has a scrapbook of  events and news clippings and the pictures show ho...

Blogs live for such a long time!  I had a comment today from another person who survived the Judsonia tornado of 1952. He had found and read the blog that was written in 2008 when I was new to blogging.  If you'd like to review the blog and comments click here. The picture in that blog, shown bel...

We are beginning a new year.  2016!  2015 surely went by in a hurry and we are all glad to start anew.Look back, however, to how it used to be.  I have so many old pictures on my computer and I have written so many blogs that I forget what I have already published on this blog.  But this old buil...

I found this old card on ebay and added it to my collection.  However, I am unable to figure out where exactly it was.  It says Hy 64 & 67 so that must have been an intersection.  I have not done a real search yet because it seems that highways change.  I prefer asking the Sleuths to give me thei...

Now that sounds like a tricky title.  Sounds as if Landis Cafe and Filling Station is for sale.  And I AM a real estate agent looking for things to sell.  But that is not what I meant. I meant that I have found a great old post card showing the old Landis Motel Cafe and Station at Highways 64 and...

Donnie Miller, whose family grew up around Judsonia, gave me permission to post this picture from 1946.  He obtained an old National Geographic magazine which had an article in it about Arkansas and the article included this picture. Donnie says that the lady in pink was his grandmother, Helen Hu...

Maintaining a search on ebay for your home town or the surrounding area will bring rewards from time to time.  This picture is on ebay right now showing what must have been the main street in Judsonia AR a long time ago.  It is for sale and I hope Judsonia will buy it for their historic archives...

We had this old house in Judsonia to sell.  We begged for a yard clean-up to make the house show better.  Hold it!  Let's not call this an old house.  Let's call it a historic house because it survived the Judsonia 1952 tornado and most of Judsonia AR did not. Alas, no clean-up.... It looked like...

Click here. Also, since Judsonia AR is so close to...

The last blog with all that scientific information about dams and things has made me long for something simple that I can almost understand.....like ghosts! This half of the stereoscopic view provided to us by Melanie Murphy from Judsonia is full of mystery.  Look at those folks in the side grou...

Here's our latest contribution to our blog sent by James Whitmore, our blog friend who has sent us some great pictures. Does anyone know where this would have been?  The writing says, "View of Damsite near Judsonia Ark. By A E Burton" The back of the card is shown below. Here is what James says a...

Isn't this a charming old house?  Built around 1937 per courthouse records.  I have it listed right now for a mere $25,500.  It needs some work but is full of memories. Look at these two things that I found in the shop building. How many remember when our parents and grandparents had to include ...

I wish I could read what the sign says.  I can read Public sale but below that I can make out only a few words. This is another picture from the stereoscopic views of Judsonia that was scanned and loaned to me for this blog by Melanie Murphy from Judsonia. It is a great one showing a Land Office...

James Whitlow has sent us another picture for this blog.  It is one that I have never seen and indicates that in 1908 a Mr. Farris had a transportation company.  Perhaps he transported folks up or down river by boat?  Or he transported freight.  Writing on the front says it is in Judsonia ARK.  T...

If houses could talk, that might be what this house would say.  It is located right across the street from the Judsonia Arkansas mansion that survived the 1952 tornado.  We have featured the mansion several times in blogs with the latest perhaps being this one.  First, let's review the after-the-...
