Widening HWY 127

 Photos from Carol Cummins-Rogers

These photographs are courtesy of Carol Cummins-Rogers, taken by her grandfather in July 1970. This is the widening of HWY 127/College Street from two lanes to four lanes. Her grandfather took these photos from his front yard. The old IGA grocery store is across the road. McDonalds was only a thought at this point and not yet built. The valley beside her grandparents' garden is being filled in. She believes John Landrum bought the land from the Buggs of The Redwood Restaurant. This is where Sonic now sits. You can see Stone Manor.
