    Hannibal MO....Go Hunt this place

    Here is hoping someone can get permission to go hunt this place by spring.....

    At the end of Wabash Ave, at the west end of the railroad tunnel, in a deep 'hidden' valley in Riverview Park, is an example of an old small farmstead of the mid 1800's to early 1900's. Near all villages there were many small farmsteads of a few acres where families lived a self-sufficient life-style with their own water, fuel, food supply. In this case wood/water are immediately availlable. The family would have had a few hogs, milk cows, chickens. The area is too deep in the valley to have crops other than a few garden plots, but could be pastured. There is a good example of a hand dug, limestone lined water well as one approaches the house location. The layout of the house can still be seen from observing the old limestone block foundation, which would have come from the quarry just around south hill. Few foundation and almost no hand dug wells are left in the NEMO area due to 'progress.'

    I stayed in Hannibal tonight. I drove down Wabash. No street sign, had to use my GPS. Man this is a bad looking end of town but WOW!!! The road along the riverfront is full of stone walls and steps up the hillside that go nowhere. I'm sure they went to long gone homes. I did not see a train tunnel and I did not get out and try to locate this vally. I wouldn't even go to the door of one of these houses without a buddy or I was packin'. But I'd love to hunt this area. I'm sure it's been hit before but it's so rugged you can be sure there is still plenty down there.
    Drink up me hardies Yo Ho!
