4/17/99 - Interview with Ed Hurt Long Time Citizen of Parkerville, KS - Now 80 Years Old.

 

Mr. Hurt said he remembers both Joe and "Dicky" Varner.   Joe ran the livery stable and seemed to be very personable.  Dicky however, was somewhat of a recluse.  He remembers when he was young coming home from school one day and tying his horse up to the post in front of "Dicky's" house.  "Dicky" came out and told him to take the horse away and never tie it there again.

 

Mr. Hurt said that a couple from California purchased the "Dicky" Varner house and has redone it.  They have put a lot of work in it he said.

 

He also said that a man from Wichita came in and purchased to old Joe Varner land and stable.  Wanted to take the rock blocks and move them to Wichita to build a house.   He had the livery stable torn down, but when he found out how much it would cost to move the blocks, he left them piled on the ground where they still remain. 

 

Joe Varner's house is boarded up and has been taken by the State for back taxes.
