Despite the fire and ice signs book-ending these two girls, this was a peaceful little town. The world may not end here, but we did wonder how small towns like this would keep from perishing. What would suffice to keep these girls in town as they grew older?

In another, even smaller town further west, an historical marker notes, “The nearby village of Newport, established in 1883, became one of the major hay shipping centers in the nation, with thousands of tons being exported each year.” It’s hard to imagine anything major happening again on main streets like this.
