Wappel, Anthony J. and Ethel C. Simpson. Once Upon Dickson: An Illustrated History, 1868-2000 (Phoenix International Inc. and University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, 2008). Tony Wappel, archivist for Washington County, and Ethel Simpson, retired from 30 years working in the special collections department of University Libraries, know where are all the buildings are buried. Wappel brings them back to life with pictures and historical backgrounds of the people who lived along the 16 blocks of Dickson Street. In many ways, Dickson Street has always provided a cross stratum of Fayetteville, starting high on Mount Sequoyah in residential neighborhoods, and cutting through public sectors, religious areas, commercial districts, industrial works, and up onto the university campus.At 404 pages, Once Upon Dickson is the sort of book you will turn to time and again for research and entertainment.
