Our Poplar Bluff Garden Club went to the little town of New Madrid, MO on the banks of the Mississippi River on Fri, Dec. 12, 2014, and part of our trip was touring the New Madrid Earth Quake Museum. New Madrid is famous because it was the epicenter of the big 1811 earth quake that shook pretty much the whole nation. It sits right on a major fault line in the USA.
Then N.M. played a big part in the Civil War too--all documented in their Museum.


 

Poplar Bluff Garden Club's trip to New Madrid, MO. On Fri, Dec. 12, 2014, to the Hunter-Dawson House in New Madrid, MO. decorated for Xmas the way it would have been done back then. No electric lights. Most furniture was the original furniture that Miranda Hunter picked out for the house. I love these old historical homes. It's fun to try to imagine what it would have been like to have lived in that era on the cusp of the Civil War.

1. The Hunter-Dawson House
2. Our guide Mike giving a little background and history to those interested before entering the house.
3. The formal dining table. Notice the celery in the crystal vase as part of the Xmas décor. There was another on other end of table.
