My HomeTown

Hartford City, Indiana is my hometown...
...it's where I've always lived and probably always will.

I found these old postcards featuring my town and love the history I see in them. This is the grand courthouse and is the most beauteous one in this part of the state. Since I only live a block away from it, I hear the clock bell in the tower ring. The bell rings one tone for every hour {one tone for one o'clock, two tones for two o 'clock, etc} so I especially love it when working out in the gardens as it helps me keep my time.

This is the old City Hall and Fire Station.
I remember this old brick building from my childhood. Unfortunately it is no longer standing and has been replaced with a modern structure. How sad is that.......


Here is the prettiest church in town.
It is now called The Trinity United Methodist Church.
My parents were married in this church 50 years ago
and our family have been members here forever.
Hartford City, Indiana, USA
What history!

  2. Just a quick hello Mandy - I was thinking of you this weekend when I enjoyed using the pretty Vera Bradley cosmetic bag you gave me, for a trip out of town. It will be off to my home in England soon......don't you wish you could come along?

    I love the architecture of the buildings in your hometown - there really is no place like home!
