Looking Back

CROSSVILLE — October 1890

+Editor’s note: Exactly 100 years later the Crossville Chronicle remains in great demand. Last month we published over 5,000 extra copies of our “hailstorm” edition to meet the demands of our readers. It is gratifying to know that after all these years the Chronicle is just as much in demand today as it was a century ago.

+The Owl Roost Road has been worked out on the Crab Orchard side of the mountain and is in better condition than it has been in twenty years.

+Dr. Rockwell comes up to the mark in cabbage this year and presented us with one that weighs 16 and a half pounds and measures three feet in circumference.

October 1921

+J.J. Castleman has bought a home in Monterey and plans to move there in a few weeks. He goes there to take a position as a sawyer for a firm that is getting out golf sticks for the general public.

+Mrs. Grace Reed announces as a candidate for Trustee subject to the action of the Republican Party. While Mrs. Reed is the first lady candidate to come before the people for election she does so strictly on her merits and ability to discharge the duties of the office. Her mental attainments for the office are very high.

+Crosby Harrison has recently purchased the lease held on the Mecca theater building and will soon put in a new stereoptican machine and screen at a cost of $600 or more. It is his purpose to furnish high class pictures and with a clearness and uniformity that will render it easy for old and young to see and understand them.

October 1987
