My husband's mother remembers the sign at the edge of Waldron.
***

"Waldron had a sign. My grandparents told me about it. No blacks in high school when I graduated. No more than two black families in all of Scott
County."
-former resident

"When I was in 9th grade, a black family moved
in, soon left."
-former resident

"When I was in middle school, a black family moved for less than a year. For that matter, a white got run out of Waldron, for an extra-marital affair."
-former resident
