My little town.....


This is a little ole house on Main St. I love the wisteria running along the front porch. You can sit on the front porch and watch all the traffic going by.
Just out of town is an old....real log cabin.....church. One of the ladies at work, remembers going to church in the log cabin. She said they built a new church a few years ago.











This is one of the buildings on Main St. Main St is lined with Bradford pear trees. They are so pretty.






This a picture of Main St at 10:30 a.m. Notice all the traffic...ha. We do have 2 stop lights. Main St consist of about 2 full block of stores and offices and even the court house/police department. You will hear the bells ringing to let everyone in town know that it is 12:00 o'clock noon....Lunch Time!!








This is where I spend most of my time. I work here. I love my job! Here, we know your name, your family, your kinfolk.....you are not just a number. We don't have to ask for your ID....blah, blah, blah...we know you and you know us. People knew me, before I knew them......word gets around when someone new is in town.







Meadville's population is now 521.....two ladies at the bank as recently given birth to God's Little Miracles. The county school.....the only county school is located here in Meadville. They take there sports serious here. They have won several state championships!!
Meadville is a close knit family town and they adopted me right away. If a child is acting up in a store or on the sidewalk....someone will correct them. It is a place where "little blue-haired women" bring in homemade sweets to us. I just love them. Ms Audrey brought in a strawberry shortcake last week.....it was lip-smacking good!!! Some people still leave their homes unlock, the churches unlock, keys in cars.......they are just good down to earth people. It's a place where the community comes together to help someone in need......I could go on and on about how great Meadville is. The attorney across the street from me....his dogs follow him to work. Another man, brings his dog to work with him and their are two huge white dogs that hang out at the Farm Bureau office.
I have brought Hailey and Garrett(not at the same time) to work with me. They enjoyed it very much and all the customers that came in made it a point to talk to them and help make them feel important...special.
Meadville is a jewell of place and until now.......one of the best kept secrets!!

wow what a wonderful little town - 521 people!! I think that's the population of my street :) LOL

I love wisteria and it certainly is in all its beauty along that porch and as for the log cabin which used to be a church how wonderful that someone still remembers it being a church.

Take care, Judith

I've only been to Meadville 2 times now and I loved it. I thought it was such a sweet 'Mayberry' kind of town. It was so peaceful there! I had a fun time shopping that day when I went to work with you. The cute little shops and the sweet people that owned them made me feel like I was stepping back in time. I even bought a couple of geeting cards in one of the shops...for our blogger friend Deanna. I haven't mailed her one yet. I need to do that soon.
Remember how I was so excited...and I wanted to open a gift shop in one of the old buildings?! I wish that I could. I wish that the economy was better and I could do that! Also remember the little man that let me have the keys to his little 'bug' to test drive? He didn't even know me!! I loved that little car! I had a nice time there and I want to go back soon. These pictures are beautiful!
