This year’s Odyssey “Reflections from a Shop Window” is a guided tour to meet the people, hear the stories and see the events of Beaton Street past. This will be accomplished by first person presentations by volunteer actors.
At one time Beaton Street was the place that families from around the county would gather, shop and spend time “people watching.” It was the main throughway from Dallas to Houston before it was bypassed by Highway 75. During the 1950’s crowds of shoppers were found in the five-and-dime stores, cafes and restaurants, picture shows, etc. It was only when the “big box” stores came about that things changed.
Come take an Odyssey with the Navarro County Genealogical Society along with the Liz Gillispie Genealogy Department of the Corsicana Public Library and experience “Reflections of Beaton Street”.
