Re: [jacksongenealogy] BLUE BONNET GROCERY in the west end of Scottsboro
- I worked at the blue bonnet when Mr red gentles ran it in the early 60s.
When they went to move it they found that the high pitched roof was too high
to clear electric wires that crossed the streets. I'm pretty sure it was
torn down. You are right it did have blue tiles on the roof,hence it's name
