When I returned to McMinnville in 1956 after a 7-year absence, Mac still had a small meat market on Third Street, a cigar store, an ice cream parlor, and to top it off, a large popcorn wagon, all at or almost at the Evans street intersection. I'd like to see the ice cream parlor return!

There's a great ice cream parlor at Third and Evand, and a large meat market two blocks away inside Harvest Fresh. But no downtown cigar store, and it would be nice to see Ma Jenkins' popcorn wagon again.
