There are no pumpkins in Punkin Center.
Never have been, says 85-year-old Anna Hill with a laugh, although she says she has considered taking a tire she painted orange, printing on it the words "Punkin Center" and putting it at the intersection of where this little neighborhood once existed.
Nevertheless, Anna Hill, who has lived in the same house since birth, said her memories are fond of the little stop in the road she calls home.
Punkin Center is located at the intersection of Illinois and Haven roads in Reno County.
Here's a link I found to another picture - it shows the old store before it was torn down. http://www.dispatchpressimages.com/press-photo/punkin-center_4f2be47109cfe107234233.html
