Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.

324 William Street

324 William Street 06-17-2015I’ve always wondered about this house at 324 William Street. It was right on the border of Happy Hollow and just down the street from Louis Houck’s railroad overpasses. It’s nice to see that it looks like it has been spiffed up a bit lately.

Not much in the paper

A quick search of The Missourian’s archives didn’t turn up much. There have been some minor police blotter entries in recent years, but these are the only two stories I could find from “back when.”

  • July 6, 1937Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Fox and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Converse of Granite City, Ill., spent the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie Seabaugh and Mr. and Mrs. Roy Eifert, 324 William Street. They came Saturday and returned Monday night. Mr. and Mrs. Fox and Mr. and Mrs. Seabaugh together celebrated wedding anniversaries Monday, the former having been married one month, and the latter, one year. Before her marriage, Mrs. Fox was Miss Arline Chippio of Granite City. Mrs. Seabaugh was formerly Miss Golda McCart of this city.
  • August 6, 1945Mr. and Mrs. Stein Hinton of Flint, Mich., arrived Saturday to spend two weeks with his mother, Mrs. H. H. Hinton, 22 North Lorimier street, and her sisters, Mrs. Lester Groves, 324 William street, and Mrs. Richard Hargraves of Sturdivant, and her brother, Jack Morton of Advance.

    My grandparents, Mr. And Mrs. Windfield Greenwell and their daughter Rosemary (my mother) lived in the first floor apt in the 1940s and into the early 50s. They then built the small White House at the rear of the property in the early 50s. They lived in the small house up until 1981 when Windfield passed away. Toots and Mary Groves and their daughter, Bonnie rented the apt. upstairs.
    We would continue to visit my grandparents quite often coming from Ohio and always remembered the trains in the front yard and a small BBQ place across from Indian Park run by a man named Bubba. Always enjoyed Blue Hole BBQ when we were in town as well!
