Community Scene Perspective

For the community you reside in, you would indeed be aware of its scenery. Just consider pausing and viewing how it appears, however; it will depend on what portion of the community it is, as well as the age and type of those buildings. For instance, the downtown area of Whitewater contains buildings from the later portion of the 19th century… Also on Business Highway 12 in western Whitewater would be the more modern businesses and restaurants, as well as a few senior apartments, Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church, a couple hotels, plus Hawk Bowl (with apartments on the inverse side […]

Sophia Fox And The Lewistown Wig-Wags

Another August post. I know this post’s 2 topics don’t really go together, but I like them, so I’m doing this one for you now. In Lewistown, Montana, there once stood 2 Wig-Wag signals on West Water Street. Down below is a photo of them from 2002. The line was then operated by BNSF.

Whitewater, Wisconsin-Old and Different

Finally, here’s today’s post: How Whitewater, Wisconsin changed over time. There once was a place called WALL CRAWLERS next to Jessica’s restaurant. It was used by the boy scouts during their activities. It had this huge, indoor climbing wall that the boy scouts could go on. Dad and my older brother Jacob have been to it 5 or 6 times. Mom and I have been in it only once. Google Maps showed photos of it in October 2007 and again in September 2009. Those street views show it back then-open and operating. But in 2010, since no one wanted to be the […]
