This was found by a banker member of the family when going through old items left behind.  He chuckled and handed it to me. Notice the check was signed with "by wife" underneath the name.  It was also "for rent" and was check No 2.  The banker member of the family thought it was somewhat amusing ...
Why join the White County Historical Society?  Many reasons but the main one could be to get their newsletter that is sent monthly....with pictures!  They have given me permission to use their pictures on this blog so I am going to share this one with you. It was in the current issue and I have n...
We've listed a house in Searcy Arkansas that has a rock and brick front.  The front is rock that looks to be the type house built by a man named Silas Owens who built houses with a delightful combination of native stone and brick.  Here's an example of the mixed masonry style and a picture of the...
Of interest today while driving in the country was this neat set of steps going over a barb-wire fence.  No house was nearby.  No barn.  No nothing.  But there was this way of getting over the fence.

Great picture, isn't it!!  This old picture of the Bald Knob State Bank with an approximate date of 1910 shows how lovely the building was.  Evidently the fashion was to have a corner entry.  I started comparing.  Here's a picture of the Kensett Bank, now closed.  Look how similar. And let's add...
I met her through this blog....She and her husband Don Thompson contributed photos, comments, and information for the blog that has become largely a pictorial of old Searcy Arkansas.  She passed away January 4, 2012 and this is a tribute to her and the many contributions she made to further the h...
Here's another view of our old Robbins Sanford building which has so much history. I found this while reading the book "The Humorous History of White County Arkansas" by Claude E. Johnson and published in 1975. This one has an interesting gable looking thing at the top which might be from the oth...
