The first picture of the main street of Park Springs 1906-1920? was provided to a newspaper by Kenneth L. McKay and originally owned by Eunice Richmond. The second picture is of the Chadwick Store, Panhandle, in 1937 with Jude Chadwick on the left. The third picture is of the depot that was on the west side of town. The forth picture, of the school house, also came from a newspaper and was provided by Kenneth L. McKay and originally owned by Eunice Richmond. The fifth picture is a 1926 school group that includes Opal Monroe, K.W. Chadwick, Carmel Chadwick, Inell Chadwick, and Mrs. Buckner. The sixth picture is a 1920's meeting in front of the Musgrove Store. It was also one given by Kenneth McKay and Eunice Richmond to a newspaper. The last, seventh, picture was made about 2000 of Opal Monroe Chadwick by the town water well in front of the ruins of the old bank building.

John Andrews writes, "My mother-in-law Opal Monroe Chadwick, who is now 94 years old, can remember what Park Springs looked like when she was going to school there in the 1920's.  From her description of what she remembers back then, that the building on the right foreground housed the Bank, Pharmacy and the Post Office.  She doesn't remember the next three buildings being there at all and is guessing that the building which housed Mr. Musgrove's grocery store would come next.  Then separated by about 30 feet or more would come the grocery store and gas station owned by W J & Opal Chadwick, called the Panhandle.  She can only remember that there were just a couple of buildings across the street on the East side of Main Street."

John Andrews writes about the above picture, "
According to my source, the photo is the sale of mules during the First World War. Also, and this cannot be confirmed, but the photo shows a young boy in the right foreground with a stocking cap on with his hands in his pockets is of Jude Chadwick, my wife's dad to be. He looks to be about 9 or 10 years old and that would put the photo in the middle of the War. He was born in 1907."
