    I am working on the remodel of the Applebee’s restaurant in Arnold. I would love to work with someone at the Historical Society to acquire some digital files of historic photos from Arnold and the surrounding area. We strive to put together a comprehensive visual story embodying the character of the community in which the restaurant resides. If anyone there would be willing to spend some time on this effort I would love to share more details.

    Please contact me at the listed email address or call at 913-384-3751.

    Thank you so much!

      Give me a call on my cell phone 636-375-1106 and we can talk about pictures. The Arnold Historical Society charges $25 per picture used. You will see some in Starbucks, Lee’s Chicken, Sunrise Cafe, Ponderosa.
      Have you seen any pictures that impress you that you would like to hang on the walls?

    I would like to know about the history of the property that I live on. I’ve been to the library but I couldn’t find any thing. I live right next to ray baker, he informed me that it used to be farmland and his grandfather originated there.that is all I really know. If you have any pictures or info could you please email me. Thank you… My address is 654 Jeffco Blvd (apartment)

    • Bernie Wilde says:

      You asked the right person. Raymond Baker’s father owned all the farmland. Raymond lives on a piece of that farmland. Baker’s Restaurant was across the street from Raymond’s house. Now it’s an empty lot. Raymond made lots and lots of fried chicken to serve every Sunday when it was “all you can eat”.

      Question Raymond a lot more. He remembers it all. If I have questions, I ask Raymond.

    I am involved in a family history project. I am searching for historical information pertaining to Lake Holiday (once located on Old Lemay Ferry Rd). Does your archive hold information conerning this business? If so, would I be able to access the archive?

    Thank you for assistance in this matter.

      Back in the ’40s, the Dietz family owned Lake Holiday and ran the business located at Seckman and Old Lemay Ferry. My husband, Roy Wilde, went to school at Herky high school with Shirley Dietz, part of that family. Maybe if you went to Northwest Library at Hwy PP and 30, you could find info. They have old maps and newspapers plus lots of other stuff.

      After Dietz sold the property in 56?? to Harry DePron, he was a business man and ran the entire complex in a different manner. Roy was the real estate agent looking for a sale from Dietz to someone else.

    I am a retired Arnold Police Officer and came across some uniforms we used from inception of the PD until B.J. Nelson made a change in 1989. Are you interested? I have both a patrolman and sergeant uniform. I also have my motorcycle officer uniform from helmet to boots.

  7. Bernie Wilde says:

    Yes, I think we could display police uniforms. Today, Fri. Allen Flamm will be keeping the museum open between 12-4. I don’t know who signed up for tomorrow.

    I am looking for any pictures of the Ziegler store that was in Arnold next to the old meramec bridge. Mostly when Ben frank Lin and coast to coast were attached. Thank’s in advance!
