Today’s #ThrowbackThursday post reaches back to 1984. This ad for Chimney Pawn & Gun Shop was printed in the Old Settlers Gazette. Chimney Pawn & Gun was located on the Fort Wood Spur (now Missouri Boulevard). Operated by the Livingston family, the shop was named for the chimney that was near the store. The old chimney was all that remained of the African American NCO Club. Sadly, Chimney Pawn & Gun has closed, and the chimney has been dismantled. However, you can see items similar to what they offered this weekend at the Kickapoo Trace Muzzleloaders Trade Fair in Saint Robert. #PulaskiCountyUSA

  1. Love your posts Laura. I have always enjoyed looking at the ads in the old Gazettes. They give us a history of our county businesses. We have already begun work on the 2014 issue. July 21st delivery will be here before we know it! Thanks for sharing your continued interest in our rich county history.
