I'm a history buff and noticed there's a lot of old buildings in Knob Noster, especially at the corners of State St. and McPherson St.

I am interested in their history, what they once were, etc. I already know the Library building was formerly a Post Office.

Does anyone here have any info they can share?

I would love to give you information on the brick building in the corner of state and McPherson but I'm also looking for information. You see my husband and I own the building at 101 East Mcpherson and are in the process of renovating it for an outreach ministry to the community and would like to find some old pictures and historical information on it. I have some info but not enough. If I find something new I will share, hope you do the same. Thanks. [email protected]

Is there anyone who can tell us about the coal mining that was done in Knob Noster in the 1870's?
I am looking for the company that ran the business of removing the coal. Would there be any photographs of the time period and the methods used to remove the coal?

Looking for a girl who worked at Dicks Pizza back in 1983. Can't recall her name, but recall her being short, cute, and I kissed her cause when she would not move from in front of the frig in the Dicks kitchen.
