Did You Know… July 5, 2018

Larry Vodenik - Special to The Chief

Did You Know… what businesses are shown in this photo? This photo has the Ben Franklin store, next door to Holcomb Pharmacy and with the Elks lodge upstairs. Today the building is home to Casa De Oro. I have fond memories of Ben Franklins former location. They had toys and candy, all important to me as a young boy. In later years when I worked downtown, the egg salad sandwiches at Holcombs, noon lunch upstairs at the Elks and burgers at the Perry Bowl were favorites for my lunches.

Did You Know… Perry once had frequent flooding in its downtown area?
