Boonville, Mo /ThursdayDoors

Last week I shared some Thursday Doors promoting our flag, Ol’ Glory. This week I’m finishing off the pictures shared with me by my youngest daughter. Always appreciative of the door photos donated (door-nations) as my days can be pretty hectic. Before I continue, I’ll tell you a little bit more about the town of Boonville, Missouri.

Boonville’s population in 2010 was over 8,000 according to the census. The name is from the sons of Daniel Boone, Nathan and Daniel Morgan, who started a salt business near there. Being along the Missouri River aided delivering their goods to St. Louis and they started referring to the trail as Boone’s Lick. A point east of Boonville was considered the beginning point of the Santa Fe Trail. It has around 400 buildings on the National Historic Register and I hope to present some more of them to the Thursday Doors fans in the future. Til then, here are a few that I hope you’ll enjoy.

  • Lace Curtains
  • Nice Shady Seat
  • Stained Glass

To those who may not be able to see the slideshow, here’s the pictures in a gallery format. I am not sure why it’s viewable to some and not others as I’m not a tech savvy blogger so this is my solution 😉 Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Flag Day/ Thursday Doors

The collection today is a sequel of my daughter’s drive through Mid-Missouri last Tuesday and this particular set is from Boonville, Missouri. This town along the Missouri River is mostly high above on the river bluffs and so largely saved from the ravages of flooding thankfully. It has quite a few lovely old homes and I was delighted when Kirsten took some door shots for me.

Friday, June 14 is Flag Day in the U.S. and the collecton today features Old Glory in various ‘poses’. Hope you enjoy!

Wreath Welcome
I’ll call this one the Wreath Welcome door
Blue Gingerbread
Gingerbread with double screen doors. A must with summertime and flies.
Wagon Wheel Spoked doors
The flag seems to be much closer to blocking the door than it actually is.
Lettered Door
This door is lettered and I can’t decide if it’s an L or an F? And yes I am old-school and know cursive writing. lol
Modern annex
The old and new are actually blended fairly well, but I still prefer the older architecture.

Hope you enjoyed my take on Flag Day for this Thursday Doors. I encourage you to take time and visit Norm 2.0 for the original Thursday Doors as well as all the entrants. It’s a great way to see doors from all over the world!
