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...
Take some time off. Check to see what is hiding in your house. In my case, I found this 32 year old Lion. (No wonder he looks sad.)  It was made by a Searcy artist, Robert Van Patten, for the 1957 Searcy High School class reunion being held in 1982.  He made 57 of them and this one is #27.  That ...
What's a DX Dealer? This ad was in the 1967 Harding College yearbook and states that it was located at 200 S Main in Searcy and gives the phone number and says it is "Your DX Dealer." I remember the building and knew the owners but I can't remember what DX stood for.  This is n...
  The paragraph below tells about the tornado that ravished our area early this week.  REALTORS were invited to go out and help with the clean-up.  An associate of mine, Mark Lercher, took this photo and said he had a hard time believing that the force was so strong that it took this metal frame ...
One very nice gentleman is Jack Spaulding from Searcy AR.  He operated Atlas Van-Lines for years and years.  He has just recently retired, so I hear. This picture was in an advertisement found in the 1967 Harding College year book.  During my real estate career, I have met him personally and kno...
Facebook calls it TBT meaning Throwback Thursday.  So on this Thursday, I dug out a picture found in the Harding College yearbook ad section in 1967.  It shows a picture of appliances in the Richard Davis Furniture Store.  I certainly remember appliances that looked like these.  Notice the stove...
Here's another look at Searcy AR in 1967, taken from an old year book.  200 W. Race is the address of present-day Regions Bank.  Look at the huge hair on the young women.  The lady in the background seems to have stuck with the older style hairdo.  And cat-eye glasses!  I remember them but I...
Here's a picture of A & W Root Beer which used to be located on East Race Street. It was located where the big building that says "Lunch Box" is located now. Somewhere underneath all that construction lurks the delightful little old food and drink place shown in this photograph ...
This picture comes from the 1967 yearbook for Harding College because the Ideal Shop bought an ad in the book along with lots of other Searcy businesses.  What I like about this picture is the style that it shows. 1.  At that time dress length was dictated by fashion.  No one dared to differ. 2. ...
This advertisement for The Pit in Searcy AR is in a 1967 yearbook.  1967 is the year that I made Searcy my home so I'm trying to remember as much as I can about The Pit. Sleuths will set me straight if I mess up. Seems that I remember it being on East Race Street quite a ways out from downto...
