Ladies and gentlemen, back in the 1960s last week, we went to the Moon – Moon Tractor Company – to look at lawnmowers. This time, let’s drive the Studebaker over to Burch Tractor and Implement Company on North West Street and see what kind of mowers and deals they have there. We’ll see if we can get a “Burch” cut, so to speak.

    As I browse a newspaper from the spring of 1968, I stumble over an ad from Moon Tractor Company, which bills itself as a “Lawn Mower Headquarters.” And, yes, Moon Tractor is very much in business to this very day on West Main Street in Hillsboro.

    Ladies and gentlemen, after catching a couple 1960s Dannie Hess & Associates auctions last time, let’s hop back in the Studebaker and find an auction or two from the other auction company we mentioned in the previous offering, Hunter-Wilson-Mayhugh Co.

    Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve been tooling around Hillsboro in the ol’ Studebaker hitting local eateries, and I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of full. Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll get hungry again soon and hit more local 1960s restaurants, but I’d like to drive around and hit a few local auctions and see if we can score a few deals.

    The Skyscraper would often open at 3 or 4 a.m. on certain days of hunting season, and in 1967, the Skyscraper advertised a “fried mush breakfast” for only 55 cents – including coffee. They also sold hunting licenses and ammo. For the first 10 years of the Skyscraper, sandwiches, pie, soup and milk were a nickel. Pancakes were 15 cents, waffles 20 cents with a drink and bacon, eggs, toast and a drink were a quarter.

    The Highlander Restaurant dates back to the early 1950s, and construction on the Highlander Bowling Lanes began in the summer of 1959. The restaurant was owned by Harold M. Day, and later by Mae Rosselott Means.

  • Stanforth’s Steak House: Remembering uptown Hillsboro dining in the ’60s

    Let’s stop at Stanforth’s Steak House. Do you remember Stanforth’s or where it was located? If you don’t, you might remember where the former Slow & Low Barbecue was located, or Prime Cut before that on West Main Street or maybe Jon's Cocktail Lounge & Restaurant.

    I don’t know about you, but I’m hungry, so let’s find something to eat. In Hillsboro back in the early 1960s, we have several places to choose from, and none of them are pizza joints. We’ve got A&W Root Beer, Dairy Queen, Dickerson’s Restaurant, Greenroof Restaurant, Highlander Restaurant, Lang’s Smokery, Magee’s Snack Shop, Maroy Restaurant and Stanforth’s Steak House, among others.

    With a week to go, the county had roughly a quarter of a million dollars to raise to meet the quota. Now, that’s a lot of money even today, but remember, $250,000 in 1942 is worth more than $4 million here in good ol’ 2021. Passionate editorials were written, and solicitors scoured the county in an effort to sell bonds to residents.

    Ladies and gentlemen, there is about a week to go in the 1942 $9 billion victory loan drive, and Highland County has ponied up more than $600,000 of its $882,000 quota, leaving roughly $250,000 to raise to meet its goal.
