Did You Know… what this structure is and where it is today?


Yes, that is Mrs. Councils Popcorn Stand that stood at the northeast corner of Second and Willis. Today it’s located at Forest Park Museum.


With spring at last showing up, I thought how each year the opening of her popcorn stand signaled the start of spring, just like the first robins. I like so many others have fond memories of Mrs. Council and her popcorn.


We lost Mrs. Council on April 23, 1969 at the age of 83.
