scenes of St Charles

a reproduction of St Charles Borromeo church. the original was build in 1791 a typical French log church with a vertical post construction instead of a horizontal contruction like the picture on top
this is the common room of the Boones Colonial Inn. It looks like a museum but actually it is a hotel, circa 1837. the innkeeper is dressed in period clothing and the last time i walked on main street, st charles missouri, this building was pop's general store. the rooms are furnished beautifully with all the modern amenities. the wall are 3 foot thick and the building was built 33 years after Lewis and Clarks expedition.
