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.

We drove up on a saturday afternoon. A bit disapointed on how many places were closed. There were 6 or 7 places open. It was a good way to spend a couple hours.
