Old building Searcy AR

I always liked this building.  This picture comes from an old Searcy High School annual, year not remembered. 

Knowing how the Searcy Sleuths get bored and desire a challenge I'm not going to tell where it is or where it was and see if you can tell me.

So you tell me if you remember it?

Harold Gene, that is so funny.  We must do a blog next on the old funeral home.  I'll go by and take a picture of the seemingly innocent white two-story funeral home.  What a lot of stories it may inspire.  Searcy your memory.

I would like to be with you when you take a picture of the old funeral home.  :-) That may be hard to do, it has been replaced by the "new" telephone office on the NE corner of Market and Oak.

Here's a great contribution to this blog from Marian Daniel Ingram who sent me a picture too!!! Note her reference to the Judsonia tornado.     Thanks, Marian.

Hi Barbara,

This picture is the first Daniel Funeral Home which was on Market Street where a telephone company is located.  Rudolph Chandler had a funeral home there before we bought it around 1944 or 1945.

We lived upstairs and had a roomy 3 bedroom space with stairs in the front and back.  We had the funeral business, ambulance service, monument company plus burial insurance. (Pretty busy place, especially when the tornado hit Judsonia and we had 24 deceased people who had to be identified.)

The Caldwells (Julia, Dorothy, Jo and a brother, William) lived next door on one side and the Strothers on the other.  I remember listening to Julia play the piano in the summer time.  She was very talented in music....sang in the First Methodist Church choir.  Wonder whatever happened to her and the others.  Believe Julia married a Dr. Henry.   Enough rambling....just bringing up old memories.  

Keep up the good work with the blogging!  

 Marian Ingram
