Today, more about I drove to Mena for a work thing and passed this neat little store in Pine Ridge, Arkansas. I didn’t have time to go inside and check it out, but hopefully I can next time. I love traveling my home state of Arkansas. Not only is it a beautiful state, it’s full of interesting, little places like this one.

Arkansas natives Chet Lauck and Tuffy Goff were two of the most popular radio personalities in America during the 30s and 40s. In addition, they also did a series of popular movies based on the colorful characters. The museum contains “Lum & Abner” radio and movie memorabilia, museum; old-time small town atmosphere in two general stores that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in the early 1900s.
