There is this little town called Logansport, IN. I was born there, but moved to Kokomo when I was only five years old. My parents are from Logansport and they each come from a family of seven children! So, we spent every single weekend in Logansport when I was growing up. Here are some fun facts about Logansport, IN.
1) They have a couple of very large rivers which are great for canoeing or kayaking.
In the canoe is Dad, my niece, and my Sister.
3) They have some yummy fun food places that I don't even need to tell you about if you are from Logansport. But if you aren't, here are three faves.....
B&K Spanish dogs or Spanish buns (I get one of each) and root beer.
(we call them Coney dogs in Kokomo, but I was quickly corrected the last time I was there!)
3) These houses are not far from downtown and a river,
and this area used to be called Banker's Row.
Now, go back in time with me.
Close your eyes....
think summer....colorful flowers blooming everywhere, garden parties, tea parties, walking to town on a Friday evening.....
with decorations and snow and Christmas trees and Santa's and such.
Think "Fixer Upper"!
5) And they have architecture in some of their old downtown buildings. They even have a State Theatre that has been re-vamped and they have 'events' that you can attend! Henry Lee Summer is going to be there next weekend! Click here for State Theatre concert events.
This is what I think....
Think along with me if you don't mind!
This town used to be a booming riverboat running, train trackin', hustle bustle town.
Imagine if you will, the downtown turned into quaint, fun, places to shop, and eat.
Imagine the trains giving rides...one hour...half a day... dinner rides....polar express rides.....
Imagine River boat rides on the river....same as the trains....dinner rides, weekend rooms on a riverboat, now wouldn't that be fun?
Think tourist town....
And those homes....oh....those homes....restored to their glory as bed and breakfasts!
What do you think? Sounds like a tv special waiting to happen to me.
Who's with me?
I'm hooking up with Amy at Love Made My Home. Five on Friday!
