MF Frogs 4

Another Milton-Freewater frog today! This one sits on Main Street (which isn't as "main" as you might think) in front of a sewing shop called "Stitch Nitch." This elderly frog is repairing an old American flag. How patriotic of her! This Main Street is particularly quiet because it is the Old Town Freewater Main Street. Whereas it used to be the happenin' place through the town of Freewater, it is now simply another side street, as the highway, just a couple of blocks away, takes travelers right past this old downtown without even knowing it's there. True, a sign marks "this way to Old Town Freewater," but what does that mean? I've lived in this valley for 7 1/2 years and I'm not sure even I know. Any old-timers have area history to share?

Don't know the meanings, just a "hello froggie!" from me.

It seems all towns have an 'old town' hidden away because of the freeway or super hiway. One should get to know the older areas. they are full of great buildings, great shops and an interesting history. MB
