Eureka's Henderson Center
Julie Timmons, over at the Redwood Coast Business blog, has a post up about Eureka's Henderson Center- the past and the future. We've gotten into a little back and forth about "the good old days" there. Feel free to pipe in and add your own recollections or clarifications.
For instance, she recalls a Grace's PIzza where Hunan's is now. I don't recall a pizza place but do recall Grace's Bar, although you did pass some sort of restaurant setup as you walked back to the bar. It was always closed later at night when I went there.
I mostly wish we had the old Food Mart back (where Rite- Aid is now). What a loss to the neighborhood it was when that closed down.
Addendum: I moved up here 40 years ago, almost to the day. I'm trying to remember what businesses were in Henderson Center back then that still exist today. Unless I'm mistaken, I can only come up with three. I might be wrong about at least one of those.
Cherry Blossom Bakery, right across from what is now Rite- Aid. Henderson Center Laundromat- right next the Cherry Blossom and, of course, Fresh Freeze. Not completely sure about Cherry Blossom because I never paid much attention to it until maybe 30 years ago. That's the only three I remember. Any others?
