Sir, this site was sent to me by a friend who went to school with me and graduated the same as I,PMHS class of 1954. I have not been to Point Marion since my mother died in 1974. When I saw these pictures, especially this first one, I couldn't figure out for a few minutes what I was looking at. I cannot believe the change in the downtown. I believe this photo is looking up Penn St. and Barneys theatre was on the right side and the barber shop my dad worked in for many years was in a building that has now disappeared. This is sad to see but also it brings back memories of a wonderful little town, and it was when I was growing up. Thank you for taking these pictures.

That is where the Barn Door was located. I think it was lost during the flood in the 80's.My Father had the bakery near the old theater. I was up there not too long ago. The town has had better days to say the least.

I remember when Point Marion was a great little town, I was born there, my Aunt Marge worked at the soda fountain in Hunkers drug store that is also gone now. I remember stores, resteraunts, the movie theater and a lot of friendly people, my how time has changed things, there are still friendly people but not much else, it's a damn shame that this happened to an American town like this.

In about four months i will be moving to Point Marion with my new husband. He has always lived in Pa. Born and raised in Union town.
As for me, i have always lived in the South. The Bible Belt is all i have ever know. Saying that i am nervous is putting it mildly!! However i do love my husband very much,and i look forward to meeting new people and hopefully finding an assembly of God church that will make us welcome.
After i settle in,i will also be looking for employment,or somthing to keep me busy.
If any of you in the area have any suggestions,I would love to hear from you!!!
I hope to meet you all soon!!

Hi There! Don't know if anyone still will look at these posts. I just stumbled upon them. Does anyone remember Jack and Becky Maple who owned the Barn Door restaurant? They were my Great Uncle and Aunt. My mother painted the mural that was in the lower restaurant. I visited often as a child and have such fond memories. I would love any photos or memories shared.

I have a suggestion. Ruuuuuuuuuuun! And stay away from churches. They are bad for your intelligence and freedom of mind.

Oh my god, do yourself a favor and don't ever come back then. It has been overrun by derelicts, welfare bums, supposed handicap lazy pieces of $hit, and thieving drug addicts. It's a dump, it's a boil on the Ass of the armpit of the world we affectionately call Fayette County, PA.

I have an idea. Bring the flood back to finish wiping out what it couldn't the first time.

Jack & Becky Maple resided in the large apartment above Kendall Floral, my Dad's business. We all were quite fond of them and dined at the Barn Door frequently. The would send food up on the holidays when we would work very long days designing and delivering flowers in Greene, Fayette and Mon Counties. Freda made the best pies and cinnamon rolls!
