A trip to Old Valmeyer would not be complete without a trip to New Valmeyer, high on the bluffs above the old town.
Meant to be a planned community, some residents complained that the feel of the old town was lost in the new town.
Perhaps that’s only logical, as the grid is gone for the most part from New Valmeyer, replaced with a fairly standard suburban cul-de-sac plan.
Unfortunately, it looks like the plan was never completed for a “Main Street” as the street facing the high school is nothing but barren lots. Surely something was planned for this area.
