I Remember When... A Glimpse of Candor's Good Old Days; Vol. 1. 2003.
From the early settlers right up until today's citizens, there have always been tales to tell about living in Candor. Get a glimpse of the way it used to be, along with a few 'tall tales,' and reminisce along with your friends and family about the 'good old days' in Candor.
Finally, learn the truth about the underground lake, or bottomless well, that was eventually checked out first-hand by a team of cohorts-in-crime. Through an obit you'll learn of one young man's travels and how he came to be part of a wagon train that was guided by Dan Carson, Kit Carson's brother!
Reminisce with the Candor Courier back in 1924 as they look back 50 years before to who ran what business in Candor, who owned 'the tea store,' and 'radio shop,' 'confectionary store,' and 'the Cozy Corner Restaurant.' Drift down the street to the 'Center' where you'll come to the neatly appointed grocery store and bakery owned by D.P. Jackson, check out the 'hardware store' and then check out J.H. Dimon's jewelry store.
Do you know what a 'tonsorial' parlor is? What about the game 'crokonole'? Did you know that Candor was also referred to as 'Saints Rest'?
Schools were everywhere back then. With twenty-some rural schools scattered about, many tell of attending these one-room schoolhouses and the teachers who taught in them.
Do you remember pumping water from a hand-pump in order to have water for the day? Have you ever walked through a fog-shrouded woodland and creek-bed during a storm? Remember the old swimming hole at the Lower Dam? Come enjoy the memories of others who were kind enough to share their fond memories of living in Candor. Compiled and Published by Carol A.
