Some of the things I remember about Haysville in the 70s as a kid.
A lot of the entertainment as I recall was centered around the Cowskin. Some of these activities were
Making rafts – sometimes using big pieces of Styrofoam that were packing material obtained from the old appliance store that was located at the grain elevator.
The big swing that swung out over the creek behind Grandlane.
Also walking/scooting the pipe across the creek.
There was a swimming hole at the big ditch near the seneca street bridge. I think it was referred to as the bluffs.
Before there were video games I remember playing pinball at a barber shop that was in the south end of Grandlane.
