I was shocked to discover I had never photographed Kimmswick, located on the Mississippi River south of St. Louis. I could have sworn I had at some point. Anyway, the small town is looking good in the summer sunshine.
It reminds me a lot of Ste. Genevieve, which is one of the famous historic French colonial town to the south down the river.
There is a nice mix of different housing styles, though they seem to largely stop in evolution in the Nineteenth Century.
This log cabin seems to be under renovation or something.
This log cabin has a wood frame back, which was common as a family grew more stable and established. It is a traditional center hall plan house.
Then later styles of houses, with planing mill supplied wood ornament, began to appear.
