I lived in Longstreet 1944-49. We moved in the day school opened and I was in the first grade. After the 5th grade we moved to Texas. My dad was in the lumber business and operated the Longstreet Lumber Co. We lived across from the L B Bagley family and their store was across the street. The lumber company was adjacent to the railroad. I remember Pauline's Cafe (she made sandwiches for the bus traffic and always trimmed the crust from bread for some reason). She was also the telephone operator. There was a depot for the railroad. Other stores were Holmes, Headrick, and Phelps(I think). Some years later after I was through with graduate school and working in East Texas I drove through Longstreet and found the old school had burned. What year did that happen?
