The streets are wide with angle parking and the sidewalks are shaded by closely planted trees trimmed to provide maximum protection for the pedestrian. Several places provide benches where one can pause. There seems to be one drugstore, a hardware store, a singer sewing centre, a couple of 'watering holes', a couple of investment/insurance firms, a couple of real estate offices, and a few technically focused businesses - surveying, building etc. There have been many more once upon a time!
There has been a concerted effort to spruce up the downtown, probably using money allocated for centennial events. A wonderful display of murals have been painted on brick walls throughout the town, some of which I have captured for the blog.
Neither Don or I know much about the american mid-west so I am definitely relaying first impressions.
