TRELOAR, MISSOURI

There's a small farm town
in middle America

Treloar, Missouri

where the locals,
and like-minded conservationists,
value their way of life
and the land worth saving.

The trains no longer pass through,
to pick up corn and grains.
And so the tracks have been converted
to the Katy Trail,
for cyclists, hikers and visitors,
and weekend concerts.

And so,
there's new life and purpose
for a town
that's not been forgotten.

It's what we value here.

(It takes a vision.)

  1. Treloar is a new one on me. But then so are a lot of the very small towns in MO.
