Last summerÂ The Greer FamilyÂ went on a historical treasure hunt.Â Â They Â knew whenÂ they boughtÂ their Â home 5 years ago, that it originally sat at theÂ location which is now KFCÂ in Walnut Ridge.Â WhatÂ they found after further investigationÂ was the house was built around 1909 for The First Presbyterian Church of Walnut Ridge to be used as a manse.
Attached is aÂ photograph ofÂ the home at the lot that is now Kentucky Fried Chicken in Walnut Ridge back in the 1940s.Â A member of The First Presbyterian Church e-mailed the Â Greer family the photograph. Mrs. Greer said she is forever grateful for the information about their current home. Also attatched is a currentÂ photograph of the Greer home.
The historic photo of the Greer home will be added to the City of Walnut Ridge website for the public to view. Thanks to Mrs. Jo Ann Greer for the photo and article submission.
