Pictures of the Past
J. G. "Doc" and Bessie Neece stand behind the counter of their country store in the late 1950s in Arbor Grove, five miles southwest of Hoxie. The Neeces had previously operated the J.K. Gibson store at Lauratown before opening this store in 1937. They served the local community with basic living needs until the store closed in the early 1970s.
