Charles Marshburn: Railroad Tracks in Adair County?
Charles Marshburn writes:
You never show the railroad tracks going in and out of the sites on The Magazine! - Charles MarshburnThanks for raising this point - Adair County does seem to have been missed, for the most part, in the great days of railroad service. However, if it is not a figment of my imagination, we did have a railroad depot, ready for the tracks.
It was located behind what is now Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, on what is now Reed Street (one time part of Merchant Street) and was for a time a place of lodging. The only information on this structure in a quiz of Historian Mike Watson which appeared three years ago on CM: Mike Watson: Do You Remember When...?, which gives as a clue "J.H. Goff opened a "Large Rooming House" on Merchant Street, behind M.L. Grissom's Funeral Home?" It would be a good research project of an inquisitive mind. - EW
