Dana Smith sent an email to a few of us recounting his memories of growing up in Gainesville and the businesses in our community. Immediately others share their memories and we had a great time. I decided to add this topic and paste their exchanges on this site. I also decided to attach some pictures of our community that I found in the Hall County Library. Please enjoy what others shared and add your memories for them to enjoy.

If you recognize any of the people that are not named in these pictures, give us the name and any thoughts you have on the person, picture or circumstance.
