1907 Classical Revival/ThursdayDoors

Reaching into a stash this week for my Thursday Doors entry. I’m pulling out a 1907, Classical Revival at 112 West 4th Street in Sedalia, Missouri.

A few lights on in the center windows.–Porter-Montgomery Building

Currently this well-kept charmer is housing meetings for the American Red Cross, a local law office and an appraisal service. If there are more offices, I appologize that I don’t have that information.

Besides being old enough to be on the National Register, it would have seen the
1st US federal corrupt election practices law passed on January 26, 1907. I’m not rattling any political flags, just sharing one fact of the year it was built. You know, being it houses a law firm 🙂

I’m confident that these aren’t the original doors but they are attractive with the entrance.

I intend to go inside and look at those frames on the wall sometime.

North Lamine/#Thursday Doors

I’m offering up a continued edition of last week’s Thursday Doors post. This one is on the opposite side of the tracks in Sedalia, Missouri.

 Directly to the left of where I stood for that Big Sky View to be more precise. This building at 118 North Lamine I learned through a phone call, yes I still have a land line, has been a moving/storage business for around 80 years. Currently State Fair Moving and Storage operate from here. Prior to that, the informer says he believed it was a carriage building business. It is not on the list I found for the National Historical Register in Sedalia. But in my opinion, it should be. I’m still waiting for a phone call or email of the person who is supposed to know all the good stuff. Til then I hope you enjoy a little slideshow of this golden oldie.

Owl Be Darned/Thursday Doors

With all the hubbub about that supermoon, of course I had to take at least one photo.

I’m sorry, but not really impressed that much. With the photo I mean. 😉

In order to collect some material for Thursday Doors, we took an evening drive through the one and only Downtown Sedalia.

I can’t tell you what resides behind this door. It could be a residence for all I know.

But I can assure you, the owl is not real.

I wonder if it really keeps the pigeons away??
