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.
Limestone arch bridge at Ash Grove
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.
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.
