South Side of the Mountain Home Square - 1949

Mountain Home Square 1940s



Welcome to the Baxter County Historical and Genealogical Society web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and find out more about our Organization and the history of Baxter County.


The above photo is the south side of the courthouse square in Mountain Home, taken by local photographer John I. Barron in 1949.  In addition to the period automobiles, notice that nearly all the parking spaces are occupied -- probably taken on a Saturday.
