Where in Missouri is...?



We are back in Missouri and
we are trotting down the road
looking for T. Up in the north-
ern part of the state is where
we will find Trenton.

Trenton is nicknamed:
"City of friendly citizens."

Trenton was established in
1857.

The have an agricultural based
economy. But back in the early
days mining was big business.
There were three coal mines and
the railroad helped to move it
where it was needed.

The city's big claim is that
they are the world's largest

producer of Vienna Sausages
Their biggest employer is
ConAgra-site of the sausage
making. So if you like these
little things you have Trenton,
Missouri to thank for that.

Trenton is also home to
North Central Missouri
College, it was established
in 1925 as Trenton Junior
College. They offer many
different programs but
has become most popular
with those intersted in
Nursing or Agriculture.

Tomorrow we will double up
states with a bit of a surprise.
See you then for U and V.

~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Hi, Melinda! I am getting caught up with you tonight! I am actually on vacation in Arkansas right now! I'll see what posts I've missed. I have been to Trenton. You may wonder why I've been to so many towns in Missouri. One of the reasons is that I have a goal to visit every county in MO. So far I've been to 93 out of 114.
