In the background of this 1968 wreck, you can see all the gas stations lined up in a row.
Texaco, Skelly and Fina. And beyond that, the big empty space from the 1967 fire that destroyed the empty Thriftway building and the Hawkeye Lumber building. And way back there, you can see the post office, which is now the Appanoose County Historical & Coal Mining Museum!
The Daily Iowegian and the Appanoose County Historical and Coal Mining Museum are partnering together to bring our readers "Throwback Thursday." Watch each Thursday's Daily Iowegian for a look at the past of Appanoose County.
