When it comes to all the stuff in the shops here...”Old people are dying, leaving it behind and young people don’t care” One of the first wrestlers in the 1920s for the United States lived in this town. Earl Caddock. Pretty cool history here.

This is a must stop if your in the area. It's not far off the highway and well worth the time even if you're not an antique lover. The bakery smells like my Grandmas kitchen. My favorite shop owner is the man in the Blacksmith...More
