  • Ware Cemetery was a casualty of the I-55 interchange.


    One of my blog readers sent me a recent photo of a stone building in Fruitland that used to be a Houck Railroad depot.

  • I finally got around the checking out Houck's CGN Railroad depot in Fruitland. It's still there, appropriately enough on Depot Rd.

  • Here are new shots of Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church and Cemetery. (Although, to be honest, it doesn't appear to have changed much since you took your photo.)


    Nice job on telling the history of Fruitland, James.

  • I grew up in the Fruitland area, and have been looking for pictures of the old store and post office. It was on 61 where ff is now. They tore it down, shortly after we moved there in 1958. I would also like to see pics of the old school,and any pictures of the school after it became a grade school. Anybody have any?
