Pine Ridge is another tiny place along Arkansas Highway 88. The main thing here is the Lum and Abner Museum. Luma and Abner were a duo of comedians that had a radio show from 1932 to 1954. They also made a few movies. They were known for their low key, rural wit. They resided in the then fictional town of Pine Ridge and ran the Jot 'em Down General Store. They (the charcters) were constantly getting involved in get rich quick schemes but getting thwarted by their nemeisis. The show was very popular for many years. The small town of Pine Ridge and the museum came to be because of the show.
In addition to the displays about Lum and Abner there are lots of items that are from that time period in this part of Arkansas and other Americana.
This nice lady runs the museum. She was very knowledgeable about Lum and Abner and obviously a huge fan.
