Bald Knob had a passenger train that ran regularly.  Trains still go through the city regularly.  I once wrote a blog about the wrong side of the tracks.  You can live on the wrong side in Bald Knob and wait a long time to cross the tracks. The old depot is shown here.  (To see it in its past glo...
Bald Knob is a small town approximately 12 miles from Searcy Arkansas, the White County seat.  Bald Knob grows on you.  Despite the funny name, the town is a treasure with good places to eat, an appreciation for history, and friendly folks. I bought this old card. It shows the Market Cafe.  The M...
Rumor had it that the square corner of Sawmill Road and Country Club Road East in Searcy Arkansas had been sold for a HUGE amount of money.  What's a square corner?  Well, I've heard that they go back so far that when roads were being made the old farmer would say, "You aint going through my past...
This card is for sale on ebay and shows the old Pecan Joe's in Beebe Arkansas.  There used to be so many of these colorful places alongside the smaller highways.  They'd have up signs that led up to the business and little kids (and big kids) would eagerly anticipate stopping at a "Pecan Joe's." ...
Look what turned up under stacks of old things. These ladies were in pictures dating back to 1930's so it was a long time ago.  This is the front side of a card and there is nothing on the back.  Perhaps some of our Searcy Sleuths will consider this a challenge and tell us who they were.  Were t...
We have meetings and folks tell about their new listings or their sales or whatever they want to tell. One agent started telling about her listing.  It is terribly dated.  Ugh.... It has that old Cloverdale green remaining. The carpets are old but there is hardwood underneath in places. The batht...
When my kids were growing up and a new house was being built or an old one decorated, it was fashionable to let the kids choose their carpet color. (Yes, carpet was fashionable then.  No one wanted hardwood floor because it was cheaper than carpet!)  Pergo didn't exist. So a house might have a ha...
Cleaning up old places turned up this old newspaper used to line a shelf....or perhaps saved because of the relative on the front page.  The date was May 20, 1964.  It was a shocker!  Newspapers have shrunk so much, not only in subscribers but also in size.  I couldn't help comparing it to the ne...
If you haven't already done so you need to put a permanent search on ebay for things from your city.  My search for Searcy Arkansas turns up a real treasure from time to time.  Here's a card that pulled up and I bought it. It is the old, now gone, Presbyterian Church that was located on Main Stre...
Daughter called me in a frenzy...... "Mother!  Mother!  Mother!  You are on Gawker!  I almost lost it when you pulled up on this website!  Go to your computer!  Fast!  Hurry!!" I typed in and look what she had found. So there I was!  Standing beside a huge guy!  I got no recognition, h...
