Remembering the Concrete Builders Supply

W.R. Lee and Ralph Rahn had the feed and seed business behind the warehouse on Laurel Street just north of the old theatre building discussed last week. A large rolling back door allowed farmers to deliver produce. Many remember unloading potatoes there.

Making concrete blocks in Springfield

In 1946, Ijon Tigleth Webb and his two sons, Ijon Thomas and George Henry, got a permit and built a building to manufacture concrete block. See accompanying photo of the permit. The brothers were known as Tom and Henry. Ijon Tigleth died in 1951. The building was located behind what is now City Hall in Springfield, adjacent to the railroad siding track from which they received the materials to manufacture concrete blocks.

More of Farm Bureau’s history

The state headquarters for the Georgia Farm Bureau organization was originally in Cartersville, then moved to Pelham in Mitchell County in July 1941. As additional county chapters were added, a decision was made to move to a more central location. In 1944, Georgia Farm Bureau's home office moved to Macon.

Exploring the Farm Bureau’s past

As our Christmas approaches and the year 2014 ends, I know we will all be enjoying lots of good food and fellowship. Without farmers none of our tables would be graced with the food we all plan to consume. In a different kind of Christmas story, I am going to tell you about the history of the Farm Bureau in Effingham County. We have two chapters, Springfield and Marlow. Each chapter has officers. There are elected county officers as well and the organization operates with an elected board of directors.

Remembering piney woods rooters

Do you remember piney woods rooters? If so, you are probably elderly. This was the name given to feral hogs many years ago. They were called this because they rooted around the base of trees in search of nourishment.

Remembering the Sky-Vu Drive-In

While the Mars Theatre offered movies in Springfield, a new experience in entertainment opened in Effingham in 1952. The Sky-Vu Drive-In Theatre offered a movie on the big outdoor screen shown only at night just south of Springfield. It was owned and operated by Pat Ingram and Rufus Wilson. The only thing left of the theatre is one building that sits back from the road just north of St. Boniface Catholic Church on Highway 21 South. This building likely housed the projection room.

Looking back at Fair history

During research on the new microfilm reader at Effingham Museum, I stumbled upon an article entitled "To Have A Fair" in the Feb. 14, 1918 copy of the Springfield Herald. Since the county fair begins next week I share this with you. A few things are not legible and are noted. It reads as follows:
