Dog Trot/Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors is going to be more pics and less writing this week. I have a wonderful gem from Clinton, Missouri to share and the history behind it as well. Thankfully it is all written out and all I had to do is snap a few photos. Hope you enjoy the shots and the wonderful story told on the front door of this possibly-earlier-than-1856 Dog Trot.

Photos first, then the story later.
Wild Roses are perfect along this window. Love them!

Doors and what’s considered the original portion of the Dog Trot.

More buildings around the property…

There was no mention of the Bell’s history. The ‘use what we have’ mentality is evident in the way they attached it to the logs.
