A little glimpse of my town

I walked over to vote on Tuesday. Since I had my camera in my bag, I took a few shots along the way. We have little alley ways behind the houses. They are very narrow and I am sure were better suited to horse and buggy than pickup trucks and SUVs. I want to learn more of the history of the town and more about the buildings. I love how Federal period houses stand next to log houses. I love that there are stone homes from the late 1700s standing next to farm style twin houses that were built in the early 1900s. I am CRAZY about the barns and sheds all along the alleys.

Next time I am out and about, I will take more pictures because there is SO much more to see!

Loved the tour...don't you wish you knew the history behind each show us more pictures of your town.

What is the population...and how near is the largest town?

Have a great weekend.

I loved the tour. Thank you! Your little town reminds me of Galena Illinois, where Louie and I got married (at the courthouse by the circuit judge!). Your town seems so warm and friendly.

Looking forward to more!

What a neat place to live! And not a Starbucks or a strip mall as far as the eye can see (I hope)!
