Submitted Memories

Growing up in Odebolt during the mid 1930s the stores were all open in the downtown area on Wednesday and Saturday nights, making those particular nights most exciting to me. Lots of people, bright lights, cars driving up and down the main drag, people visiting one another and summer band concerts on Wednesday nights. Great memories!!

My grandparents, Fred and Margaret Einspahr were long time residents of Odebolt. I would spend my summers in Odebolt with my mother, Margaret Ann Einspahr Gilbert and father. Early memories include 'getting' to detassle corn, walk the beans and fishing. It was a special treat to go to the drug store for a fountain soda, or to check out a book at the library. One other vivid memory was playing on the long log swing at the school.
