I'm going to add more of these. it's insaine how things work. Cardwell was 'THE THING' when I was growing up and it wasn't nothing compared to when my grandfather, my mother, and my beloved Grendmother Inez L. Hawkins seen it and helped mold it. from stories from my family and verious people throughout my life it's a place most people just forgot or just wished they could forget. But I truely am a little envieous to not have seen those streets as in the pictures of some really incredable building to shotgun shops. Yeah! I bet those where the days. But to me I'll never forget it and it;ll always be a place of wonderful friends wonderful family and one that I'll always call my home I'm so dissapointed that Cardwell was just nine miles to far into Missouri into becoming Paragould. I Will be back! AND I'm getting my grandmother's house back to us when I do. Love ya'll guys

Christopher, I drove from St Louis to Cardwell today I was in totally shock to see how much it has changed. My grandmother lived in Cardwell all my life. My father was born there and his family owned lots of farm land there. My Dad got a job at GMC and moved his family to St. Louis MO. I have some very fond memories of Cardwell. I was truly sad to see so much is gone. It is like a ghost town. The police station is a very small store front building. A pizza joint and Roxys restaurant that was all that is there now. I felt empty as I drove out of town. Went to the Cardwell cemetery to pass my respect to my grandparents and other family members. All and all a good day a stroll down memory lane.

You must have missed Shamrock's. It is still there and is the only thriving business in town. It is now called "My Place" and is owned by Karen Ward. Who would have thought Shamrocks would last this long.
