Alva's Hilltop Memories
"The owners of Hilltop Gas & Grocery when it burned was Leslie and Golda Lyons. They also had a motor shop and Golda rewound motors. Leslie passed away but Golda is still alive and lives in Cherokee, Oklahoma. She does not have a computer but I will print this e mail for her.
I also remember Ma Beck and the stations along hiway 64. Most were at the top of a hill because the old cars were usually steaming by the time they got to the top and needed water.
Another one along highway 64 in west Woods County was Plainview. I think the Schroeder family were the last owners of that station. I remember we had to go there to make a long distance telephone call to Freedom and Alva. The old Plainview store is about a mile or so east of the new one on the corner. You can see the old building, which is about gone, on the north side of the road. Lookout is very familiar to me as I was born near there. I loved to go there and get a chocolate pop." -- Marty
