Well Curb Installation - click on photos for larger views.
A local piece of history found a new home July 14, 2011, in the curve of the driveway between the Senior Center and the Josey Ranch Library. The well curb has been part of Carrollton for many years and was donated by the Blanton family. Recommendations were made by the Historic Preservation Advisory Committee, the Library Board, the Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee and the Senior Advisory Council. City Council approved the decision to accept the well curb. The best location was determined and Councilmember and local business man, Terry Simons, donated the equipment and manpower to move the heavy concrete structure.
Interview with Marian Blanton, August 6, 2009. The well was located on the Glidewell farm, which was on the corner of Belt Line and Nix, where the Daimler/Chrysler building is. There were originally two identical well curbs* - one by the house and one by the barn. When Marian Good Blanton was born (September 1921), her family lived on the farm next to the Glidewells. When she was a girl of about 12, she remembers being able to hear every time the bucket was raised in the well and always thought it was a pleasant sound. The Glidewells sold the farm. When demolition began, Heavy McInnish (McInnish Park) took the well curb by the house and moved it to property out of the metroplex. Jack Blanton moved the other one to 1501 Francis in approximately 1960. Booker Jackson, who worked for Blanton Grain Company, helped in relocating it, using equipment from the grain company.
* Marian Blanton recalls her father saying the well curbs were poured by a traveling salesman who had that one mold and poured the curbs across the country.
