    My friend Don sent this old postcard photo of Searcy and gives the following explanation of this Searcy Arkansas, White County picture.  Thanks Don.  It is a REAL oldie.    1911 May Day ParadeIf you can't read that faint caption, it tells us that those were public school children marching, an...

  A few months ago I wrote a blog about our new store coming to town, Harp's Grocery.  I was negligent in that I never went back to take a completed photo of it but it sprang up overnight, seemingly, and it is beautiful.   I've been there a few times and bought lovely things, at high prices for s...

  This is a picture of the old Plaza movie theater which was located directly across Spring Street from the Mayfair Hotel in Searcy Arkansas, White County, about 50 miles from Little Rock.  According to my friend who supplied this picture, it was run by a Mr. K.K. King, who also ran the Rialto Th...

I love this old card that shows the dirt streets of Searcy AR.  It shows the First Methodist Church at the end of the street. The courthouse would be on the left of the solitary wagon and man on the street. I have already posted one with the street looking West.  I have several people contributi...

While looking through my old junk, I found this self-promotion advertisement that I mailed out in 1993.  That is the year that I went to work for RE/MAX Advantage.  Well, the truth is my friends found it and showed it me.  They'd saved it because they liked it. It really is irrelevant that when ...

  This old hotel is still in Searcy AR and still being lived in.  I don't believe it is a hotel anymore but more of a permanent home for people and office space for businesses.  It is within walking distance to our Spring Park, where people used to go for herbal water treatments.  We had a deligh...

  This building was a familiar sight in Searcy Arkansas for many years.  It was torn down just about a year or two ago in order to make room for a Walgreen's Store on the old Truman Baker Cheverolet corner at Race and Main Streets.  It had changed over the years but not a whole lot.  It was made ...

   My broker often brings his 9 year old son to work with him because he lives in an area with no playmates for the child.  Rainey is a character and all of us sorta pamper him and sometimes cater to him.  He asks to do chores for us for a few cents pay.He came into my office the other day and sa...

  This is another picture of Searcy Arkansas and is reportedly the West side of North Spruce Street.  I put up one about three days ago that showed this same area or a part of the area but it appeared to be posed with gentlemen dressed in finery.  This appears to be a more likely scene with peopl...

  This is another picture of Searcy Arkansas White County taken so many years ago.  I love the guy on the light pole who may have climbed up there for the photo.  I would assume photos were a big deal then.  Do you think there were people on the streets for the photo or were there that many loite...

BUY LAND How many times have you heard this?  Perhaps with a little more class but the saying means the same.  It's smart to buy land because no more is being produced.  I've never met a man who didn't want to have land, ranging from a big yard to acres and acres. I'm here to give a personal tes...

Judsonia Arkansas was a thriving little town in 1952.  This shows a picture of the streets much earlier than 1952 when they were dirt.  I love seeing the old town photos.  Judsonia is just about 5 miles from Searcy, our city of 20,000. The saddest thing about Judsonia is that in 1952 a tornado c...

    Everyone was there!  His friends, his relatives, his associates from the Historical Society where he has served on the Board as Treasurer for so many years.  He is now an honorary Lifetime Member of the White County Historical Society. He stood in the entry of his daughter's house and greeted...

We have this condo under contract now!  This Saturday will be a big day for the sellers because they'll be getting rid of a lot of family treasures.  No family member has room to hold everything so most of the household items, antiques, furniture, etc., will be sold.  If you want to see some of t...

Did you watch America's Got Talent  last night?  I did, and the Elvis impersonator was terrific!!!  He was very handsome, just like Elvis!  He  had the crooked smile, the Elvis hair do, and was dressed in black leather.  He was fantastic, like Elvis is back!  He sang "Hound Dog" and sounded just ...

    Another picture of the old days in Searcy, White County Arkansas.  I really love this one.  The ladies all have on hats and are dresssed just as alike as the girls dress today.  I can assure you everyone had on some sort of hose.  And they had on sensible shoes, no needle pointed spikes that ...

My friends have given me permission to use this old photo of a young boy and his tractor.  It has to be a very unique one and if any of you guys can identify it let us know.  I just asked my husband what he thought it was and he said he thinks it was an old garden type tractor, small so you could...
