My small town....

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a photo looking down Main Street of Old Milford (Milford, Ohio that is)..  It is the small town I grew up in.  Right up until I was 24 years old and moved away from Ohio to live in Virginia with my husband. It is the town I walked around - played around - rode bikes around - drove around (when I was old enough) ...
When I go back for visits, I still start off from the street where my parents still live - walk all the way down and around and back up - past the school where I went until the sixth grade - past the school where I went to 7th and 8th grades - past the church where we went on Sundays - and then back to the street where my parents still live...   I was homesick the moment I left home in 1974 - and all of these many many years later - I still feel that way. It will always be "home" to me - and one day, soon I hope - I want to live there again.....

I grew up in the city then moved to the suburbs so my childhood longings are split. You come from a beautiful town :) I lived in Kent OH for almost three years is this close to Kent? Just wondering. I cannot recall.

Oh I cannot wait to live closer to my daughter again. I love your sweet hometown.
So picture perfect. All towns have their secrets though. Ours has a few.

What a picturesque town! I have a lot of nostalgic feelings for my hometown, too.

It looks such a classic small town. Home towns have such a pull don't they?
