What was the name of the Lincoln Mercury Dealer on Little River Turnpike? What year did the Lake Barcroft Dam Burst? What was in the space before Fritzbee's opened? What came first--the Burger King on Backlick Rd. or the Superslide (Backlick Rd.-Springfield)? What year was Annandale HS declared national champions in Football?

Dave Pyle's Lincoln Mercury. Annandale was National Champs in 1978. The dam was severely damaged in 1972 during Agnes, but it wasn't a total collapse.

What year did the Baileys X Road Towers collapse?

What year did the kid die after being bitten by a copperhead that was in his kiddie car at Fairyland?

What year did Memco close?

The dam never technically failed in 72' it was 3 feet above capacity but never burst.

The Skyline collapse was in 1973.

Memco! Wow. BJ's before its time! Though I think technically it was in Alexandria.

#3 McGruders?

#5 Mark Hamill. Annandale H.S. alumni.
