I picked up this Barneey’s Motel & Restaurant matchbook on ebay — a wonderful place to go antique shopping. It’s been called Barney’s Corner since Barney built it in 1945. Back then you could got to Barney’s to dine and dance. Since then the building has gone through a number of transformations. Currently, it’s a mini mart.
Barney’s full name was Barney Malcom (brother of Keith Malcom and son of Olaf Malcom). One of this claims to fame — in addition to Barney’s — is that he was stationed at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked. He survived to come back and make his mark in Eatonville.
