Beautiful Greyhound Bus depot built-
in 1938 by Hubert Owens Construction
Co. Located in Jackson,TN. Also, this
historic station is registered in the
National Register of Historic Places.
Hopped on the Greyhound from
Memphis heading to Nashville back
in May. I had a seat to myself “YES”
earphones on listening to Wayne
Hancock via Pandora (great station btw).
Imagine me hitchhiking thru the
volunteer state circa 1961 In my
country western gear,chewing
wrigleys mint gum & a tall beehive
drenched in hairspray. Two hours later
we’ve arrived in Jackson,TN.
waking up from my nostalgic dream
of hitchhiking,I glanced up at this
glorious beautiful building. RETRO
bus station still in tact & a bit of rust,
I fell in love
Stepping out the bus to take a
smoke. I saw 3 elderly men sitting
outside talking, laughing, drinking 😉 &
smoking their cigars.
“Hello young lady,like the shades,na”
“Takes me back to my old days”
(I pulled out a square).
-“You got a lighter”
F L I C K!
“Where you from doll”?
“In 1951 the place to be in spring was the Negro Tri-State Fair,I took my 1st date there”
-“How much was admission”
-“WOAH” (a woman of few words).
