Scene from old downtown Searcy Arkansas.... Ford Buick Place?

By

Searcy AR

This fantastic old picture of downtown Searcy Arkansas is worth displaying.  You see our old Courthouse in the background and I believe this is part of the old Ford Buick Place.  I called my husband in to ask him where it was and he got all excited and said it was on the East side of the Courthouse and housed the John Deere Store. I pointed out the signs say car and truck so he then thought it might be something else. 

I think the picture may have been taken by my photographer friend Paula when she did her 4H project in photography and she can surely straigten me out as to where this was and what the background is.  Look at what appears to be a church in the background and the house on the horizon fascinates me.

Please, Searcy readers, tell me more!!

Barbara,

     Great shot!  I am digging the courhouse in the background.  I have always loved the courthouse in Searcy.  One of my favorite landmarks in Arkansas.

Don, you are a real detective!  I love the aerial view photo but I can't tell what is what so we may need a little pointer or two.  Can you put a few on the photos?
