A Stop at Wooldridge/ Thursday Doors

I’ve hoarded some pics of a lazy drive through a very small, quiet Mid-Missouri village one Saturday in September. Time to share.

I love this house on the hill. That, my friend, is what you call a breakfast porch. Sipping your coffee, watching the sun come up is what I would do with a view like that. I can imagine it’s been here about as long as the town has existed. Wooldridge, Missouri, named after Dr. Wooldridge, was founded in 1901.

We drove down Highway 179 passing by a chance to see a rather large Steam Engine Show. We weren’t in the spirit to mingle with large crowds so this little piece of turf seemed to fit the bill.

All small towns have abandoned buildings and most have or have at one point had a post office. The post office has been in operation since 1902. However, you must know this isn’t the original without my telling you. I bet if I had stopped in here, I may have heard some good gossip šŸ˜‰ Those mail persons know quite a bit about small town inhabitants. You’ll just have to trust me on this.

Even though I have the space for more, I’ll be saving the 2nd half of this doorscursion for (possibly) the next time.
