A Country Luncheon and a Tour of Pike County!

Today I had a luncheon and tour of Pike County highlights/ landmarks for a group of 20. I donated an auction item to the HRC last year. We had a lovely day. I served chicken salad, curry rice salad and watermelon/mint/feta salad. We toured St. John's Church (1st Episcopalian Church west of the Mississippi), the Rockford School House, the historic McIlroy farm & the Elgin Cottrel House in Clarksville. After the tour we feasted on blackberry, cherry and peach pie with ice cream! Another Pike County Tour Today Above is the historic McIlroy farm (circa $1850's). For sale for in the $230,000s….fabulous with perfect views…needs a bit of work.





Landmarks Association Pike County Ramble 2012

The St. Louis Landmarks Association had another Pike County Ramble in May.  I hosted the group…many who were returning ramblers from last year's tour to Clarksville and Paynesville.

We had a lovely day and saw the best of Pike County and Louisiana.

We started at our family farm- Rockford Farms where they saw our historic Griffith McCune house and then the adjoining Rockford School House. Afterwards we saw the historic McIlroy House perched up on a hill with a perfect view of the rolling hills and valleys. From there we traveled to Louisiana.  The group waived at the historic Stark Home on Highway D as they ohhed and ahhed! At the first stop in Louisiana they were greeted by the Osborns at their historic Luce House on Georgia Street. See the first set of pictures below. Afterwards we dined at The Eagles Nest on chicken and shrimp salad. After lunch we toured the perfectly restored Jackson House on Georgia….peaked into one of the historic Buffum homes….visited Stark Nursery….then somehow we got the bus up through the rambling River View Graveyards roads to catch a view of the river and Illinois valley beyond. The group was impressed and will certainly spread good words about Lousiana, MO and Pike County!

Homecoming at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Eolia, MO Pike County

Yesterday I attended St. John's Homecoming services and picnic. It was a lovely day to get a little religion (I am not Episcopalian, though everyone is welcome!) and feast on the pot-luck supper. The attendees always bring the best food.  I brought my Green Chili and Rice Casserole.  Get the recipe HERE. This event is usually the first Sunday in October.

The church dates back to the mid-1800s and was built with the donated bricks from the original owner of this HOUSE.

So many photos…the retro ones are from my iPhone Hipstomatic ap.
