the building across from the old courthouse was the old bank building, still standing. no one will buy it because it has asbestus(spelled wrong) in it. ok if you were going to Bunyons or Studs, where would you be going? remember when we did not have any lake city police( only a night watchman) and when we did get a police officer, they had to drive their own car.

Bunyons and Studs were the pool halls(no girls allowed). I remember if I needed my brothers I would just stand at the door and holler at them.

Yeah I remember. The first bicycle I got came in on the train. Picked it up at old depot from E.A.Hanks who ran the depot. I also loaded a lot of cotton on boxcars from Huckaby Gin. The old post office also was beside the tracks. Does anyone have any pictures of the old moose that ran back in the late 40's and 50's? By the way does anyone remember the hooters Mrs. Hanks had.

the MOOSE was a small pasenger train that ran between jonesboro and i think blythville,the sound that it made sounded kind of like a moose rather than the normal train whistle. i did have a smaal book that told some of the history of the jonesboro,lake city and eastern railroad. check at the library or lake city museum. good reading

I remember Walt&Erma's. I remember the Fall Festivals at the school in the school yard. I remember playing spotlight in the neighborhood with a whole lot of kids. The softball games. The Parts Plus store that was behind of what now is the courthouse on the highway. The game room that was connected to Farmers Market grocery store..Does anyone remember the orginal name of the little diner right there on the highway across from catfish drive? I remember the Chatterbox and how everyone in the city back in the day treated everyone like family..And last but not least I remember being known as a Lake City Catfish...lol

It was Don's Dairy Freeze... I think...
not sure about before that...
I moved there in 1980...
that was the first place I ever had what
ya'll called "custard"...
I just called it ice cream...

I remember when they built Farmer's Market...I didn't know it was a grocery store chain and I could figure out what the big deal was about having a "vegatable stand" in town....LOL

I, too, was used to Walt & Erma's

It only became Don's after he moved from Trumann.. it was the Dairy Freeze now that I come to think of it at least as early as I can recall.
