Lincoln County Again

Lincoln County is one of my FAVORITE places.  It was such a beautiful day, calm day after all the wind we’ve had.  I wished you were with us.

Since the grasses haven’t started growing  I saw numerous root cellars/storm caves.   NO, I didn’t crawl into any of them!!!

All that is left of this home, is a window in the milo stubble.

Ash Grove, KS at one time had a grocery store, lumber yard, blacksmith, hardware store, hotel, church and school.

Yard art? or just poor parking?

The wooden frame building was the Pottersburg Church.  It was moved to Ash Grove in 1925.

The church bell is still in the bell tower.

Ash Grove school closed in 1966.  Can you hear the school bell ringing?

To the south of Ash Grove was the site of Pottersburg.

A woman died near Spillman Creek and was buried in the cemetery.  A local man later bought this stone for her.

Continuing south is a place that I came across years ago while exploring with my Mom and Aunt.   It is the only place that I have seen that has limestone clothesline post still standing, I was so happy when I came across it again.  It is absolutely in the middle of no where.  Can’t imagine how awesome it would be living there.   DSC03268

I always loved hanging clothes on the clothesline.

Limestone Double Arch Bridge, no longer used but they preserved it when they re-routed Highway 18.

      Thanks Doug, Lincoln County, KS is such an amazing place. I find such peace, I love the solitude. The Flint Hills would be my next favorite place, well that and Castle Rock…..it’s hard to really pick a favorite, I love my “fly over state” Kansas.

    I’m so glad you posted. I LOVE your pictures. I’d love to see the places you go. When I saw the stone the gentleman bought, I nearly burst out bawling. What a COOL thing to engrave.

      The homestead with the clothesline post is so special to me as years ago I found that place with my sweet mother (who passed away in August, I miss her) and my favorite Aunt! As I stood there I was wishing they were with me.

      I will have to check in to the buttons so you can reblog. (I don’t even know how you did the happy faces!) I loved the post that you reposted about the hands! All of your post are so entertaining.

        Awe, thank you. Miriam is quite an amazing person.

        If you go on your Administrator page, there’s a list of things you can do. If you click Share, a screen comes up to add share buttons to your posts.

        You get to choose which you want to use and drag them to the area it says. Then clip update at the bottom of the page.

        There is also a help button on the Admin page if you need more help. 🙂 My happy face was a colon and a parenthesis. Depending on how you have it set, some faces are really emoticons and some are just the punctuation.

        Now you tell me (lol). Thanks SO much for helping! I haven’t been to your Facebook page. I follow you on WordPress.
        Don’t ask about “utilities” in previous post. Spell check drives me crazy sometimes!
