Old Depot in Beebe AR, a town that still has a lot of character.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

I've had to drive to Beebe a lot lately and I love driving through the old downtown.  I always wonder why they don't come to Beebe and film a movie.  It would create a perfect background for some 40's or 50's movie.  I put up some photos of old town Beebe a few weeks ago.  If you missed them go back and review them.

I love the old depot.  Here are photos of it when it was an active one and what it looks like now.  Correction:  I assume it was active then.  Perhaps the age of the cars in the background will deny its being active plus looks as if weeds are growing around the depot.

Lots of trains still come through using these tracks but no passengers board

Barbara, I rode a train recently and love the platforms and the stations. This one in Beebe has that special charm to it.

Gary, did you go through small towns and see old depots.  I'll bet that was interesting.  I've always loved the looks of the old depots, probably because of the overhanging roofs.

Charles, thanks for reading my posts!!

Barbara,

Speaking of going back. There is a new drivein opening near here, where they are going back to waitresses on roller skates.

Steve, that will take a skilled waiter or waitress to run around on roller skates.  Is it a Sonic?  They are all over this area but the car-hops (remember that term?) are not on skates.  You order from a microphone and a real live person brings the food and you can eat in your car.

It looks almost the same.  Except of course the more recent picture is in color!
