Some 80 years ago, Madisonville celebrated Fourth of July pageantry in 1941 as shown in these photographs. George Mire, Sr.‘s family lived in the Otis House in Houltonville, while he was building his family a beautiful home across the road on Hwy 22, so the background in these photos are probably the Otis House yard.
