                                  Another historic home is offered for sale in Searcy AR.  It has sat regally on the corner of Hwy 16 North and West Academy Street since 1929 when it was built.  At that time it was probably considered almost "in the country."  The stone for the walls make the wa...
We have done two other blogs with pictures of this building on them.  We called it one of the twin tins located at the corners of Oak Street and Pleasure Street in Searcy AR.  It has just been announced that the feed store that has operated here for many years is closing and the building and lan...
The back of this picture has in writing, "Pastors home Searcy." According to other research that we have done, this house was probably located on East Park Avenue where the Park Avenue Baptist Church is now located.  It appears to be a charming house made with the mixture of rock with brick that...
I stumbled upon a lot of old, old pictures and here's one that has information written on the back that says, "Park Ave's first bldg.  Z L Fraser, George Pierce."  They are referring to the Park Avenue Baptist Church in Searcy AR.  Evidently, they started out in a house?  Does anyone remember thi...

I wrote about her once before because she hopped up in a house that I was listing.  There she sat above the fireplace.  The link is below and the house is no longer for s...
  Here are two more old pictures which become more interesting as time passes by.  The first one shows a dressed up lady in a carriage on a pretty worn area with an old fence in the background. The second one seems to be showing her having reached her destination and is on the bridge called Red R...
These pictures seem to be a sequence of fun photos showing a boy and girl "horsing around" on a possible date long ago.  They are dressed up so they must have been trying to impress each other.  They have been identified by our Super Sleuth Mary Fraser Dunn as relatives of hers.  ZL Fraser was he...
  Here are a couple of old pictures of the East Park Avenue Baptist Church building as it looked several years ago.  I do not know whether the new church was built around this structure or whether this one was torn down.  It is interesting to see the buildings that were once beside the church and...
Found. A neat old post card.  Post cards must have been easy to have made and could be quite personal. So what's the deal with this old card.  Was it a real saloon or was this just a place for the Arkansas Traveler to posy up for a picture.  Note the top sign says "Arkansaw Traveler." The young m...
This is a really good blog that has been featured and refeatured.  I am also asked about the possibility of getting a real estate license and I think I will refer them to this blog from now on. Several times a year I am approached by people who want to become a Realtor. Many of them think it's a ...
