Old picture of Newman Real Estate in Searcy AR. Can you name the location?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

We had a real estate firm in Searcy Arkansas led by Helen and Jay Newman and they were absolute experts in taking a building and turning it into a beautiful real estate location.  They are retired now but had a long and successful real estate team.

This picture is in a yearbook and unless I'm mistaken some of the people in the photo are either REALTORS now or were at some time.  I'm asking my Searcy Sleuths where this building was located.  And you might, if you can, name the people in the photograph.

Sorry, Gene.  Should have known there was a good reason you hadn't jumped in.  I'm still puzzled:  is this the Pershing Gas Station directly across from the Methodist Church?

Safe trip down to Arkansas.

Sorry the people in the pic are from a time long after we left Searcy.

We're back from Kaua'I Hawaii and now in Sunnyvale for a week before heading home and having a visit with Harold and Carolyn.

Barbara, I'm sending you an article about a property that sold near here recently. It is the most expensive

property to include a house ever sold in the U.S. of A.  100 million!

No, this isn't the station directly in front of the Methodist Church.  This one is on the corner of Race abd Main, on the Southwest corner.

Barbara, this was my grandfather's (Troy Haile) service station. The brand was "Amercan". It was on the corner of Race and Main street. If you are on Main Street at the intersection facing north, this station was on the left. It is a parking lot behind First Security Bank now. I remember another service station across the street (east), and Truman Baker Chevrolet was caddy-corner across the intersection. I don't remember what was on the northwest corner.

Harold Gene, thanks for helping.

Kara, I seem to remember that it sat at an angle on the corner.  Is that right?  Thanks for helping with this puzzle about old Searcy Arkansas.  Join the blog and keep helping!
