|Written by Darci Tomky|
Volume III is here and is a perfect addition to any household or business in Phillips County. “Those Were the Days...” is the third book published by the Phillips County Historical Society to document the history of Phillips County.
Walsworth Publishing of Missouri printed the 200-plus page hardcover book, which has been in the works since 2009 when the Historical Society voted to pursue the book.
The late Vicki Conklin really pushed for the book, said Historical Society members Hilda Hassler and Carol Haynes.

“We wanted to preserve history—to have the history on Phillips County,” said Haynes.
