The above photo was taken c. 1900 of the south side of the courthouse square in Mountain Home.   It is a sepia-toned print, available in two sizes.  The 12" x 18" print is $10.00.  The 16" x 24" print is $15.00.  It would make a wonderful gift for the history lover in our family.

 


 

BCH&GS is offering for sale these two historic reprints.  Each reprint is 11 by 14 inches and sells for $10.00.  One reprint shows the south side of the Mountain Home Square in 1949.  The other reprint shows the west side of the Mountain Home Square (these buildings no longer exist, having been razed to construct Mountain Home Plaza).  Prints can be purchased locally from the Heritage Center or at Old Tyme Restaurant on the Mountain Home Square.  [Note: The photo of the west side of the square was actually taken in 1973.  We apologize for the error in labeling.]
