THV11 in Your Town feature: Batesville

THV11 in Your Town feature: Batesville

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – I’m not going to lie. I think I chose Batesville for this trip just because I wanted to visit my old home again and see how much it has changed since I graduated from Lyon.

I could immediately see several changes as I drove in from Highway 167. Southside seems to have blossomed quickly into a busy area; Colton’s has moved to the old Bonanza site, my beloved Quizno’s/”secret” study place has shut down, and a Walgreen’s now sits where the old gas station and Baskin Robbins once stood. Things were even changing on campus and in the downtown area.

LYON COLLEGE

The biggest change at Lyon so far is the new Edwards Commons building. The original building was destroyed by fire in 2010, but a new 44,000 square-foot building has risen in its place, housing a campus store, mailboxes, a dining area and bistro, and the student life center.
