The atmosphere was reminiscent of a family reunion at the meeting of the Arbuckle Historical Society Monday, July 18. Longtime Sulphur residents heard a talk by pharmacist Larry Hobbs that night. Many guests know the Hobbs family personally. Hobbs related his own history here, and told about how his family came to be in Sulphur. He and his wife, Judy, moved here from Texas in 1973 when Hobbs began work in the pharmacy at the Gibson Store. It was located where the Plaza is now in downtown Sulphur.
