RURAL MISSOURI

 


Doesn't this old Victorian have potential?
We passed it today in a little town we
visited north of our area.  It is in Monroe,
Missouri.

This was not a good sign that the antique
place had a for sale sign on the door.

The local Ben Franklin does a huge business


in this little town selling cotton quilting fabrics.  There are tables with unbolted calicos.  Rural ladies come from all around to purchase fabric for their quilts.



And lots of corn which I thought
looked pretty poor compared to
other years:

Bernideen, you took some fun photos. It would be a lovely home if the blue
house were taken care of. I really can't imagine how expensive it would be,
though. US 36 in Monroe runs right through my town.

Wow, I haven't seen a Ben Franklin in years...and the fabric story..❤
All the farm pictures remind me of Kentucky. So peaceful.
