I'm looking for photos of the McComas Post Office, Shoe Shop, Hoot Owl Inn and others. Does anyone have any?

Also a request has been sent to me for photos or information on the Ladies Basketball Team at McComas High School in the 1920s! Hoping someone can help. Thank you!

McComas High School (1925-1960)

Home to the BLUE and GOLD McComas LOADERS

There were 105 steps going up to the McComas High School according to Jackie (Curran) Howard.

(if you can see them through the trees - 41 years after the school closed.)
Does it make you loose your breath just to remember walking up them?
I'm seeking contributions (data/pictures/memories) from anyone willing to share concerning
McComas History.
I'll gladly include it on these pages annotating the contributor.
As a recent convert to the wonders of family genealogy I'd like to stress that each and everyone of us need to pass on to our children their heritage. How often do we talk to them about their ancestors - or even what our lives were like in our youth. Many of us no longer live in a small close knit community like we were raised in. We had family and friends surrounding us and sharing in teaching us every day. Our children don't know where there roots started from unless we take the time and initive to teach them. Write it down, talk about it, visit old friends and places and introduce them to your children. Maybe re-introduce yourselves to them as well. It feels good!
