What a beautiful street of old historic buildings restored to how they may have looked once upon a time. There is a lot of history from each of the buildings. What once was a river front town of houses and businesses is now a street of various kinds of shops, antique stores, restaurants and bars, and some offices. The sidewalks are of brick and stone. The actual street is paved with brick. On one end of Main Street next to what once was a mill is a real running stream that flows in to the Missouri River. Located behind Main Street is a beautiful tree lined river front park to walk though. This provides a wonderful afternoon. They have many different kinds of festivals during the year. My personal favorite is ChrIstmas tIme wIth singers dressed in period costumes singing Christmas music along with Santa Clause and a rain deer for the kids. A word of caution, it can be a hit or miss with several of the restaurants.
