  • I understand that the youngsters don't have the memories of the dime stores, shoe stores, pool hall, mercantile, Check's hamburgers and the goldfish in the pools in the full round park in the center of the square. They don't know about "cruising" the square being the social place on Friday & Saturday nights as well as Sunday afternoons. We must make the square as well as the rest of our Berryville a town for good memories for this generation. I understand that the old square concept is being built all over the country...just look at the Landing in Branson...the same idea. We all need to encourage and shop with our local merchants. There are always visitors commenting how nice it is to see a town square that is not all boarded up and lifeless....fountains and park benches, good restaurants and shops show Berryville to be a promising place to live. The Berryville square is like any other precious antique, needs to be polished and taken good care of. Hopefully the city along with the rest of us who call Berryville home can work together to keep it beautiful and "memorable" for all to enjoy.
