You can still drop in for breakfast at The Toast. Or lunch at the Lemon Drop or Gene’s Root Beer. They still play baseball at Memorial Field, and you can bowl at Cooper’s. Or play golf at Grandview, Anderson Country Club, Edgewood, Killbuck or Meadowbrook. Or watch auto racing at Anderson Speedway (nee Sun Valley). But for now Athletic Park pool remains closed.
Mounds Mall has seen infinite changes, but it’s still a landmark (pending that still-to-be-finalized reservoir deal). Inside, MCL Cafeteria and Zale’s Jewelers have been there since the start. Head east and Mounds State Park is still a beautiful getaway.
And that’s not all.
