  • The 35th annual Howardstown Homecoming was held Aug. 4 at Saint Ann’s Church.

    The popular event started in 1978 with picnic on the grounds. Now, second and third generations of Howardstown families are enjoying the festivities.

    “The grounds were filled with a lot of people this year,” said Lois Cecil, principal at Saint Ann’s School.

  • At one time small towns had one or two major stores to supply food and other supplies. These stores often were the central “hot spot” for visiting with neighbors and sharing a bit of gossip.

    For Howardstown, the local hot spot was the old F.M. Head store.

    Also called the Howardstown Grocery, Howard Brother’s store, and Head’s Grocery, the business was established in 1875 by Joe Howard, the founder of Howardstown.
