HISTORIC YARD OF THE MONTH


The historic home of Kathy Searcy and Vic Mazon, 333 San Gabriel, has been selected yard of the month for September by the Linwood Acres Garden Club. Searcy (center) is flanked by garden club members Joy Reagan (L) and Jeanette Hudson. The home is the former C. W. Matson Home. Matson owned and operated Rockdale's former Dixie Theatre, beginning in the 1920s and later operated both the Dixie and Reel Drive-in. The location is also the site of Rockdale's second school, taught by Maggie Hall in 1874-75. Yards may be nominated for the honor by calling the Chamber of Commerce, 446-2030.
