E.W. Hobbs has been a constant at Salem Willows Park since 1897. When Priscilla Hobbs was a child, she watched her father and grandfather pop their famous buttered Hobbs popcorn on the same century-old equipment that she and her brother Charlie use today. “I tell my grandkids to start learning those machines,” Priscilla says. “We need to get the sixth generation trained!”
