Then and Now: Dec. 11, 2015

The picture in Tuesday's Midweek edition showed the Alpena Pass Depot in 1902. The picture of the same site now is drastically different. The Alpena Pass Pavilion sits where the old depot was located. If you look carefully you can make out the old St. Louis and North Arkansas (later the Missouri and North Arkansas) Railroad right-of-way. The wooden buildings along what is today U.S. 62 have been replaced with stone buildings, many moved from the declining town of Carrollton. Alpena Pass was formally established as a town in 1908. Most sources state that 'Pass' was dropped from the name in the 1950s. (Photo by David Bell/Carroll County News)
