My Dad and Mom owned a grocery store and our home was attached to it. I am very fortunate to have pictures of the building in the early 1900's. The front porch is still there and all the time I was growing up, it was the town hangout. It looks like it was back in the 1900's too. When it was first built, it was a saloon and from what I am told, a pretty rough place.
My Mom and Dad bought it in 1945 and Dad operated the grocery store until he retired in the early 80's. When I was a child, it was a booming place, because of the grain elevator and the milk plant. But, once farming changed and the elevator burned down the milk plant closed. We soon saw a decrease in activity in our little town and today the only business left is Mom's little Quilt shop.
We all knew everyone in town, but that certainly is not true anymore. People come and go and things just are not like they used to be. I have such fond memories of growing up in Teegarden.
