  • This was found on the northwest corner of Indiana and Broadway in front of Edward Jones.

    I have a brick from downtown – it was found when they built the Sonic Drive In and Judy Ritter’s son in law brought it to me. It has a prime spot on my sidewalk to the front door of my home. I was the second owner of Crozier’s Flowers – bought the business from Bob Crozier. I cherish that brick, it always brings back small and large memories of people and the store. Sandra Wolfe
