I love this view of Searcy Arkansas that is for sale on ebay right now.  The listing says it is a 1912 view of the street on the South side of the courthouse. That would be Arch Street.  Dirt streets, old cars, old gents standing in front of Baugh's Drug Store.  It's fabulous and should be owned ...
This blog is a test for Searcy readers as well as a memory trip for me.  During my real estate career I've helped two families obtain property for child care centers and this is one of the results. It is extremely difficult to get licensed as a day care center.  We had to measure every room.  Dis...
It was another double-take look as I drove by this house today.  I drive by all the time and have often wondered how the city let it remain in such bad condition.  It was not habitable and hasn't been for years. Today, it went down.  Here's what I saw.  The house is (er...was) at the corner of Oa...
Oh, look.  I missed a call from Kathy but she left a voicemail.  I'll see what she wants. voice but it sounds as if boards are being slammed around or stacked. Surely Kathy is not in trouble and being beaten by boards and hit me as a contact hoping I'll call for help?  Shou...
We've all heard about every little nook and crannie.  It's an old saying.  I picked up and brought home this book called Every Little Crook and Nannie.  It had no book cover so you can't read to see what the book is about. The not knowing what a book is about has always been a pet peeve of mine. ...
There's a lovely new beauty shop in Searcy AR with the name of Adrianne's Salon and Spa.  They had their grand opening today with the Chamber of Commerce having a ribbon cutting to welcome the new business. I stopped by and asked the owner of the business, Adrianne, and her co-workers to pose fo...
Hubby failed this test. Hubby, born and raised in this town of Searcy Arkansas, when asked where this was located, flunked the test. He didn't remember. I covered up the address, as I'm doing here, to test the other Searcy readers to see if they remember. The first real estate firm that I worked ...
This blog has traveled over Searcy and we've stopped at a lot of places but we have NOT been to this street.  This one has to have a lot of the old features left.  Look at the sidewalk and I see not one spot for the physically handicapped to be able to enter a business. This street is probably ba...
These apartments are NOT for sale now but they were in 1989.  An old real estate booklet with homes for sale had these in it.  First was this set of apartments. The apartments are ok but what interested me was that water tank in the background. Where is it now and where was it then?  Is it still ...
A 1989 November real estate advertisement had this picture and these comments.  This house is at the corner of Oak and Vine in Searcy Arkansas. What a deal!  I guess someone bought it.  This style house was so popular in this area.  They had the high-pitched roof and high ceilings and were often ...
