Bunceton, Missouri Pt. 2/ThursdayDoors

The Badge

This rural Missouri town named Bunceton seems to sit quietly in Cooper County. When you don’t find a lot of information on a small town, you resort to looking at the businesses it has. Basically, you’d notice that it’s a farming town with a Feed Store, Bank, Hair Salon and a Kindergarten through Grade 12 School. I’ve read about loved ones who’ve passed and a little about a 13 term mayor who made national recognition as the first elected, openly gay mayor in the United States (information comes via FaceBook & Wikipedia). So it seems this is one town with some gumption as we like to say around here. As a rail road town, it has a nice little city hall that may have once been a depot. It was closed during our visit. The sign welcomes you and says they’ve been welcoming for over 100 years. Actually they celebrated a Quasquicentennial in 1993. So for well over 150 years now. There’s a book apparently for those interested. But we all know that I’m here for the doors. Hope you are too!!
