Hi Forum,

A lot of us know Hardy as the quaint little nearby town. It has a rail road station, and tourist shops and attractions. (The train station is dealt with in another post in this section, including historic train rides.)

However, a lot of us don't know the deeper history of nearby Hardy. Here is a thumbnail of it from wikipedia:

History: In the early 1950s, the Horrell and Clay families both had grocery stores there. Conway Horn ran a general mercantile store. Charles Cone ran the Western Auto Store. Two places to eat were Bonnie's Cafe and Mrs. Rogers' sundries store. Arthur Snow was a pharmacist and owned a drugstore. The agent for the Frisco Railroad was Virgil L. Walker, Jr. Dink Booth was the barber. The Thomsons ran the movie theater, and Ben Dalton published a newspaper. Ottie Cate ran a poultry and ice house, and Bill Shaver had the Standard Oil service station. Tom Walker was in charge of the local bank, and Woodrow Wilson ran a Mobil service station. "Peavine" Clouse was the city marshal. "Guinea" Gray was a local painter, and Clifford Brummet had the contract to carry the mail between the post office and the arriving trains. He also had a farm near Hardy. Arthur Garner sold real estate. Doctor Miller was a local medical doctor. Leonard Johns worked at the Post Office. Two famous residents were the Wilburn Brothers Doyle and Teddy born here in 1930 and 1931.
