OCTOBER 16-- The historic Belvidere Motel complex is up for sale in Litchfield, Illinois. It consists of a house,, cafe, gas station and motel. Cost is $250,000 if you want to buy it. On NRHP and the single family residence is described as well-maintained.
Built in 1935 by European immigrants Albina and Vincenzo Cerolla. In the 1940s and 1950s it was a popular stop. The cafe was the Cheers of its time. The restaurant remained open until several years ago when it moved to another location.
It is a neat looking place which I always drive by when I'm in Litchfield. I did get the chance to eat at the restaurant before it closed.
OCTOBER 17-- The Gasconade River bridge has been placed on the Missouri improvement list after being closed. By Hazelgreen, Missouri. And, it is a bridge that looks like abridge.
OCTOBER 20-- Lebanon, Missouri, will hold the groundbreaking Thursday for its Route 66 park. I'm looking forward to seeing the Nelson Dream Fountain recreation.
