Craterville's Rush Inn was popular establishment

In Dorothy Mae McClure's scapbook [see August 16 post] she referenced a trip to Craterville Park on July 4, 1946, just days prior to her 12th birthday.

She included photos of Craterville scenes and attractions.

One of Dorothy Mae's scrapbook photos pictured the Rush Inn, Craterville's central eating establishment.

The Tillman County Historical Society's Pioneer Townsite Museum in Frederick holds a menu from the Rush Inn, dated 1944.

Scans of the single-fold four-page menu follow.

Still more Craterville photos from Dorothy Mae McClure's scapbook are located at the end of this post.

Craterville Park's natural pool was a great place to cool off on hot summer days.

The park's skating rink was a popular attraction.

Bumper cars were great fun!
