Another treasure from Anita Hart Fuller's collection of pictures.This seems to be a post card with the congregation of First United Methodist Church posing in front of the historic church.  There is no date on it so we'd have to guess at the date.  The church windows seem different from the windo...

Miss the service of yesterday?I do.  I must admit that shopping now in at least one of my favorite stores of yesteryear is a disappointment.  There is no one in the shoe department to help you find a size.  There is no one in the ladies department to help you find the proper fit for you.  There a...

Smith-Vaughn Mercantile Co.Let's see if I remember.  This picture was taken from a 1978 Harding yearbook.  I moved to Searcy in 1967 and this business was in operation.  I started working in the real estate field in 1979.  I transferred to Powell Realty a few years later and Powell Realty was loc...

 Smart crows!I have the very best pets! Crows! They come to visit me each morning and each afternoon and see if I have given them a few treats. If I walk out they greet me with a “Caw, caw, caw.” Translated that means, “ Hey, here’s the old woman again! She may have food!”Crows mate for life, so ...

Surprise!How can you know someone for years and years and still be surprised to find out a hidden talent that the person has?  That is exactly what has just happened to me!!My friend and associate,  Alice Lercher, just sorta accidentally showed me some of the fun things she has drawn, cut out, an...

Another delightful photo from Elvin Davenport's collection.We don't have to guess who this young boy was as he was sitting around a pool.  Was it a Searcy AR pool?  Perhaps Larry Leon James, who has verified that this was he, will join in and tell us where it was.  Perhaps, also, he can tell us w...

Here's a neat picture of two dogs.  Back in 1955 in Searcy AR there was probably no license law that required dogs to be kept in their own yard.  These two appear to be tired from roaming all over the place and are now crossing the railroad track to get home.This photo is from Elvin Davenport's p...

Who were they?I'm curious.  This is another one of Elvin Davenport's pictures.  As we have repeated several times, Elvin walked or rode his bike all around the city of Searcy and the surrounding towns way back in the 50's and 60's.  He carried his camera and snapped pictures all the time.  Sherry...

Spring Park in Searcy AR??Yes, we do think so.  This is another of the Davenport photos loaned to us by Sherry Person and taken years ago by Elvin Davenport, a young man who rode around the countryside and citysides and took pictures with his camera.  This appears to be looking East across Main S...

 Girls ride bikes on the sidewalk is Searcy AR?We have shown several other pictures taken by Elvin Davenport as he roamed around Searcy and surrounding towns on his bike in the approximate 50's and 60's.  Reportedly, the first two girls shown here are Clydell Neal and Mary Kay VanPatten.  The que...

See if your situation is the same as mine.  I had 8 mm film of kids.  I had the film transferred to VHSs.  VHSs are now practically extinct so I had them transferred to CDs.  I had lots of old family photos and I had them copied for family members.....  AND I had to send them all off each time.NO...

Worth noticing is this old 1979 phone book from Searcy AR. It turned up at a sale where folks kept lots of items, including this old phone book.  Imagine our surprise to find two phone numbers in this book.  One was for Duncan, Rodger W.  (Wives didn't count back then but I lived there too.)  And...

1965 photo of yard and small houses.Here's another interesting picture loaned by Sherry Person from her dad's collection.  Her dad, Ivan Quattlebaum, was a history lover and saved everything.  These pictures, we have found, are from a collection of snapshots possibly taken by a long-ago resident ...

I remember days like this. My mother was "tickled to death" when she was finally able to have a washing machine like this one.  It was still work to wash all the clothes and hang them on the line to dry but not nearly as hard as it was when she used an old iron pot over a fire to boil the dirty c...

What a great picture of a parade in Searcy AR dated Oct 1955 but possibly taken during the Fair Parade in September?  There's a police car, a fire truck and folks watching AND remember parking meters?  There's one in the background.  Most of interest, however, is the old train station that was lo...

This old picture was shared by guess who?  Of course, Anita Hart Fuller, who grew up in Searcy AR, married a Searcy boy, left Searcy but still has a love for this town and stores many, many memories to share with us.  This picture was made on Arch Street with the "Woodson" house in the background...

 I have done you a big favor.   I made a copy of this wonderful old picture of the Searcy High School 1942 class that was loaned to me by Sherry Person and then cut it in quarters so that you can read the names!  And you surely will want to see if any of your relatives are in the pictures.  Sherr...

Here are two pictures that were found in the Harding University 1978 yearbook.  They show something about Searcy that you might remember.  I do seem to remember Freeway Park for skating but don't remember the miniature golf, swimming, or health spa.  Seems that I remember dropping the kids off fo...
