Along Pennville's Main Street

   Pennville, Indiana

The white building on the left is Nada's Ministry.  

The center building is - what appears to be - a collection of used clothing and a variety of other used objects offered for sale.

On the right, a red brick structure that seems simply empty.

Reheated Monday Morning Coffee: Pennville, Indiana

Pennville a town in Penn Township, Jay County, Indiana that was settled by Hicksite Quakers.  

They were mostly country Friends who perceived urban Friends as worldly. They split from Orthodox Friends in 1827 due the views of Elias Hicks.
The population was 706 at the 2000 census which, by July, 2017 dropped to 548.

   Pennville, Indiana.

From 1903 until 1917, the Cincinnati, Bluffton and Chicago Railroad, sometimes referred to as the CB&C, ran through Pennville.

Village Renewal

   Pandora, Ohio.

An open area where a building once stood.  Wonder what it looked like.  Was it constructed of red brick as it's neighbors?

Yup - There Is One

Traveling about the Midwest, there are a few sights that you can count on seeing and this is one of them.

   Pandora, Ohio.

Others include, a lodge hall, a local bar / restaurant which serves as a meeting location for the locals and often murals painted on buildings depicting local history and / or events.

Off course, there will most certainly be an American flag displayed.   Pandora didn't disappoint.

Monday Morning Coffee: Liah Update

It has been very quiet and low key weekend.  No photography walkabouts as Liah - while improving - has not completely recovered.  

She somehow injured her back.  In addition to medication she receives a once a day - for six days - a lazer treatment. Hopefully, by the end of the week she will have recovered.

If all goes well, will return to daily blog entries including a few remaining results from Decatur.  These will be followed with views from three other Indiana and Ohio locations. 

   Decatur, Indiana.
