I lived in Noel from 1960 to 1963 and remember the summers most of all, especially the summer of '61 with the civil war centennial celebration. I was saddened but not surprised to see that so much of the area around Shadow Lake (the movie theater and Slabside Motel most of all) has gone the way of the rest of us. A half century has passed and all things pass except the river. It looks the same.

When I was a kid we used to spend a couple of weeks every year just outside of Noel, at my aunt Alice and Hazel's cabin on the Noel River. I learned to swim there when I was 5 years old. There was 2 other cabins along the river there and there had been a cave behind the cabin that was blasted shut years ago. We dug on it for years, we were curious children, it was full of artifacts. Down the road, there was a farmer that had a pet deer that we played with. Right before you turned off the highway, there was a ice cream/hamburger joint and that was my land mark. If I remember correctly, when we came up from Tulsa, we came into town and crossed the bridge to the stop sign. On the right was a camp ground, I'm pretty sure we took a left, because it seems that the bluffs were on the passenger side of the car. I sure would like to know exactly where that cabin is now, it's been 20 years or more since I have been there and I'm thinking about taking the trip next week. I so want to come to the place my momma loved so much. She died the 8th of this month and some of our best memories were at that cabin.

Warm regards,

Katy Hestand

We are with a Christian music group called InCourage and are inquiring about any events you might like us to sing/play at. If my memory serves, is Noel where the Jesse James Days Celebration is? We would like more information on any singing opportunities you may have. Thank you for your time.

Admin reply: FYI: Jesse James Days is in Pineville, just a few miles from Noel...

If you do not own a car is there any public transportation out of Noel?

Admin reply: Sadly, no... The closest bus stop is Anderson, just a few miles from Noel on Hwy. 59.
No regular taxis operate in the Noel area.
If you are staying at a campground you may be able to talk the campground operators into shuttling you to & from the bus stop (or where ever you need to go) for a reasonable fee. The campgrounds, as well as the clubs, and the locals, all want some sort of public transportation for our visitors (and locals that had one too many at the clubs), but sadly no one has been able to find a way to make it financially feasible. At least not yet.
Again, local business owners know this is a problem and they are usually willing to help their customers out if they have time. I know at least one campground offers shuttle service to & from the local clubs on weekends. So it doesn't hurt to ask...

Can you give me information on the making of the movie "Jessie James"? My parents were staying at the motel in Noel Mo.,where the movie stars were staying. This was around 1938. What was the name of the motel?
Helen in Texas

I am coming there for the 4th and I saw that last year there wasn't much information on fireworks display in the city aside from the river ranch resort....I am wondering if anything has changed this year or if anyone has information on fireworks? Thanks!
