The "Early Days of Dickson" series explores important stories from the past that may have been forgotten or never written down. While the focus is mostly historic Main Street, the stories are about the growth of the city over the years. Most stories are in chronological order and topics range from local legends to famous visitors and other key moments in local history. New articles are published every Wednesday in the Dickson Post. Available wherever newspapers are sold. All stories are written by Justin Spurlock.
