Arlis White And Snake

Published on May 18, 2015 by in News

Arlis White with a snake

Arlis White is the man holding the snake in this picture. Arlis was a cab driver in Harrison. We cannot identify the kind of snake this is, but the head appears to be of a pit viper. It is probably some type of rattlesnake, but cannot see rattles. This picture was taken on the north side of the square.

City View Camp800

The City View Camp used to be located in Harrison, Arkansas on Harrison Hill, across from the current fairgrounds. It was demolished in the 1980s to make way for condominiums that currently stand in this location.

The back of the postcard reads, “Rest and relax where it is cool, with the comfort of knowing you and your personal effects are in absolute safety. City water from a gushing Ozark spring. Mountain top location and overlooking North Arkansas’ leading city. Going south it’s through the city on top of the mountain and going north it’s on top of the mountain just before entering the city. Cooking facilities for those desiring to cook. All modern rustic log cabins. Rates reasonable. Phone 158. Owned and operated by Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Ormond.”

Published on May 1, 2015 by in News

bchm43015

In this inaugural live show we took a quick look back at the cornerstone opening that happened on this very day in 2012 which ironically enough was the first day that Jim Bumgardner and Toinette Madison met. We then discussed some headlines and articles from the Harrison Daily Times archives that are at the museum. We also touched on Jim’s favorite topic at the Boone County Heritage Museum; Henry Starr. Thanks for watching and sharing this video and supporting the Boone County Heritage Museum.
