Another historic event for the old residents of the Crayne community is the centuries old local landmark of the entire area is being destroyed in the name of progress. It may be progress to some, to others it is not, it's just the destruction of something that should be left alone.
Monday of this week, Dec. 19, 2011 the new US 641 corridor in Crittenden County between Marion and Fredonia was started. Above is a picture that was made that same day. The road is to go between the historic twin knobs, taking much of the rocks and boulders with it. You can see the heavy machinery in the lower part of the picture as it clears away the trees for the other equipment to come through.
