Loss for the Village

The Washington section of Sunday's P-G included a story by Linda Taylor on the closing of the Ole Hickory Inn in the village of Hickory in Mt. Pleasant Township. It was owner Bill McCracken's diagnosis of cancer, not bad business, that forced "the fire to go out."

The Ole Hickory Inn was a great place to have dinner and drinks, notably before or after a performance by the Old Schoolhouse Players at the nearby Mt. Pleasant Township Community Center (the one-time Hickory School).

Those traveling through the little village on Route 50 will miss Bill McCracken and his inn.
