Back through the years in Marion County...

Downtown Hamiton

Made and contributed by Bill Weaver, this shot of downtown Hamilton at night was taken about 1968 on Military Street North at the main intersection.
The courthouse is on the left, and the Marion County Bank Company building is in the center. This is now Wells Fargo. The Lion’s service station (a 24 hour service store according to the sign out front) across U.S. Highway 278 can be seen. A telephone booth is on the corner on the south side of 278.
The signs read Russellville 38 north, Memphis 160 west and Haleyville 25 east. The state and U.S. highway signs are for 78, 278, 43 and 17. One sign on the utility pole advertises a rodeo.
