    This little building was Dr. H. D. Youmans’ office. Dr. Youmans lived around Johnson Corner for many years (early 1900s until his death) and delivered many babies in the area.

      Omg, what a memory. That building was always a landmark when I was growing up as we lived only a few miles down the road on Hwy 56, closer to New Branch. In fact he was present at my birth and was our Dr. Until he died. He had a office in the back of the drug store in Lyons and that is where he removed my tonsils when I was 5. Thanks for the memory.

        Gail, Dr Youmans swabbed lots of throats, removed lots of tonsils and took care of lots of locals. I remember his office located in the back of Ideal Pharmacy located on Main Street, many years ago. How I dreaded seeing him coming my way with the scissors clutching the cotton saturated in whatever that “swab” contained!
        It was nice to get a soothing ice cream after seeing the doc.
