Sabetha Fourth of July memories of past years

This photo, taken during the Fourth of July Parade in 1924, looks eastward from the intersection of 11th and Main Street in Sabetha.


A group of Haines Store employees gather for a photo on July 4, 1916. The Haines store in Sabetha also had a store in Maryville, Missouri. About every summer, the two stores would meet for a company picnic which most often, according to photos, took place at Big Lake Park on the Missouri side of the Nebraska and Missouri state line. One of the vehicles was used for the “Sabetha Bunch” because of the sign over it.


These three men were part of the July 4, 1911, parade in Sabetha, which was held on Main Street. They are standing on the southwest corner of Washington Avenue and Ohio Street. Just behind them is the Jesse McCoy house. Next to it and beyond, is the front porch on the east side of the Mary Cotton house. This view is looking north, and the large brick building at the far end of the photo is where – at that time – stood the Sabetha Post Office. This building is still standing and is presently the home of the Nappa Auto Parts store at 123 South Washington. Both the Jesse McCoy and Mary Cotton house are long gone.
