Barney’s Matchbook Cover

Locals know Barney’s Corner as a gas station, but early on it was much, much more.

I believe this matchbook cover comes from around the 1940s. Back then there was food and dance.

Barney was Keith Malcom’s brother and he opened the establishment when he got back from WWII — a survivor of Pearl Harbor.

  1. Hello-
    This was my grandpa’s place. I did not ever know the man. He passed away when my mom was in high school. I was wondering if anyone had any of the memorabilia. I am willing to pay for them.
    Thank you-Amellia


    • Hi, I have a matchbook cover, but that’s about it. You can jump on the Eatonville History Facebook page. They may something. I know there are pictures.


    • Hi Amelia,

      If you get any duplicates, I would be willing to buy the other one. Let me know… it might lower the price for both of us. Cheers,
