Front Street, Washington, Franklin Coutny

We’ll head down to Front Street along the Misssouri River, where unlike nearby New Haven, here that street name is more logically facing the riverbank where steamboats would have docked. There is a parking lot for visitors, which I’m not thrilled about and I think would be best filled in eventually.

Industry such as corncob pipe factories and so forth sprouted up along the river, and their legacy remains.

And as is so typical in all towns along the river, the railroad eventually swooped in and cut off the landing from the town. There are two depots along the tracks.
