The Granite House at Larry Bell Park

Obscure Marietta Scene at Larry Bell Park

Back in the day this granite stone building was used to store dynamite.  Groover Hardware had the keys.  Gene Groover remembered helping his grandfather, the owner of hardware company to load the explosions  into the building.

 I think the County Work Farm was just a stone's throw away... or a stick of dynamite 's throw away.

When I was growing up, from our front yard it was in plain view next to the Softball field.
