BHS displays Pop House memorabilia

If you remember the tasty sandwich made from homemade bread, ham, cheese, lettuce and mayonnaise called the SNEAD, you probably are of a generation who visited the Pop House Club somewhere between 1941 and 1973.

The food was just one of the features at the teen hangout, run by the late George Stankewitz.

Some of you also may have obtained Joseph J. Accardi’s book, “Images of America Beloit Club Pop House,” published in 2008.

For anyone who would like to take a walk down memory lane, Accardi’s book is still for sale at the Beloit Historical Society. Now, however, Vince Stankewitz (George’s brother) and Accardi also have released four volumes of photos from the Pop House years to the BHS.

In the entryway of the Society also are two bulletin boards with selected photos from the volumes on display. Also on display is a copy of the old menu with the SNEAD and other club favorites listed. The pictures have been identified and labeled, said Paul Kerr, BHS executive director.

And anyone who would like to look through the four binders may do so at the Lincoln Center, 845 Hackett St.

The binders are divided into four categories: George Stankewitz and the early years of the club; activities like the chili festivals, burger eating contests and senior girls breakfast; sports teams and musical entertainment.

Some of the photos include autographed pictures from such musicians as Conway Twitty, Bobby Vinton and Tommy Roe.

The BHS is open noon-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. For more information, call 608-365-7835
