Carmen Higginson is seen on Friday on his former property, where he ran a barber shop alongside Old 41 Road in a building he and his father built in 1957. Higginson used to keep the area trimmed up and looking good until he quit the business in 1999. “I used to know everybody in Bonita Springs,” Higginson said. “Now I don’t know anybody.” Obviously, times and the town have changed in Higginson’s eyes, but the stories of those that built the town are, as Higginson did, everywhere. “I drive around and see the street signs; I knew those people.” he said.
