Humeston During the 40s or 50s

Downtown Humeston 1940s or 50s

Today the town is much smaller.
(1913 population was 1400, now 673.)
The gas station on the left is gone,
so is the building next to it. This
was formerly the Chevrolet Agency. The
others on that side of the street are still
there, but have changed hands many times.
On the right side is an antique store where
Hutchinson's used to be. There are not as
many cars parked on the street, especially after
we lost our grocery store.

But it is a nice place to call home.
