  • We lived near the Brantley's when I was growing up, and I remember all of us neighborhood kids going to their house on Halloween. They gave each child a can of soda instead of candy.

  • Thanks David for another great picture. I can also remember the Royal Crown Bottling Plant being at the East corner of the Madison Street/Hoover Street intersection. Mr. Hoover sponsored a softball team for us in the early '60's.

  • I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who remembered the Grapette Bottling Plant on North Main that was located just past Bobby Newell's State Farm office. Eddleman's Sheet Metal later occupied that building.

  • My aunt & uncle had an apartment in a house at the corner of Madison & Hoover in the late 40's. They were living there in 1949 when their daughter was born. I would spend a few days at a time with them & remembered the RC plant being across Hoover from their house. My husband grew up here & was 14 at that time. He doesn't remember the RC plant being on Madison, only the later location that you mentioned.
