Golden Age of Hickman County
Golden Age of Hickman County "The Difficult Years" now out

The difficult years of the Twenties through the Forties saw some businesses lose their way through first one World War then another. The Great Depression sandwiched between the two challenged businesses in Hickman County.

While the subject may sound depressing, the book is livened up with anecdotes. One such story tells of Tasty Bakery, and its deliveries of day old bread to the local CCC camp. The New Dealers who established the camps throughout America believed that fresh dough was unhealthy. Bakeries had to wait 24 hours for their bread to get a little stale before it was fit for hungry young men.

A launch party for the book will be held at the Hickman County Historical & Genealogical Society at 107 S. Washington St. in Clinton on Saturday, April 18th at 10:00. The author will share her own anecdotes about the book and the ups and downs of being both author and publisher.
