    I do believe it’s the intersection of Memorial Drive and Wyman Street, just north of today’s I-20.

    Now, history geeks, who can tell us what happened here in 1864?

    This is definitely Memorial Dr. & Maynard Terrace/ Wyman St. My mother use to have a hair salon on the corner for many years. Although the business is no longer there I still know the area very well. It’s interesting how the area has changed since 1966 and now in 2010 landmarked by Checkers Fast Food and the Famous Ms. Anne’s Snack Bar!
