A special thanks to Phyllis Crenshaw for bringing this photo to us.
She tells us that this is the band Wildwood Grass playing at the old
volunteer fire station in Locust Grove in 1978. Band members were Ross
McQueen, Maryann McQueen Moss, Gary Sowell, Gary Crenshaw, Jimmy “James”
Brown, Sammy Brown and Willie Walls. This was the first barbecue they
held there to raise money for the fire department.
Chipper and Norma Gardner tell us that “this is one of the first
“Locust Grove Day” celebrations at the original fire station located in
an old gas station on Highway 42 in downtown Locust Grove.”
Leslie Upchurch also wrote in to correctly identify the photo.
