Then and Now: Feb. 12, 2016

The 'Good Will Tour' -- thought to have been a local politician's campaign tour -- stopped in front of Stidham's Store in Grandview,. Note the KTCN 1480 radio station's speakers on top of the car. Today the building is still recognizable as Stidham's Store, though the roof lines have changed in the intervening years. The location of the old gas pumps can be seen at the lower left next to the highway pavement. Old-timers who used to live in Grandview remember that in the early part of the 20th century a shopping trip to Berryville was an all-Saturday affair traveling in a horse-drawn wagon on dirt roads. Or you could have caught the morning train to Berryville for a quarter, returning that afternoon when the train was returning from its run to Harrison. (Photo by David Bell/Carroll County News)
