Where is...?



Today we are playing catch-up.

We are heading for the hills in
both states. We will do a little
back tracking and begin with R
as in Rock Hill, Mo

Rock Hill's settlement dates back
to 1800 (ish).

It recieved it's name from an old
church that was named by a
Presbyterian minister who came
upon two steep and rocky hills on
the way to the church's founding
celebration.

The French pioneers lived here
in the early years.

The city has a total area of 1.09
square miles--all of it is land,
with approx 4,636 people
living there.

Rock Hill has seven city parks
for their residents enjoyment.

In the fall, the community
gathers for the Annual Rock
Hill Fall Festival and Parade.
Visitors enjoy good food, a
variety of music and much
more. Fun for the whole
family.




Moving on to another hill
on the Kansas side. This
is  S as in Spring Hill.

Spring Hill is located in
two counties in the state.

Named after a town near
Mobile, Alabama by the
first settler to the town.

In 1990 the population
was 2,191 and in 2010
it went up to 5,437
people living there.

Spring Hill was home to
the first female doctor in
the state, who it was said
was part of  the Under-
ground Railroad.

As with most cities Spring
Hill enjoys their community
events.

During the year they have:
~~The King of the Hill BBQ
~~The Spring Hill Fall Festival
~~Hometown Holidays

The city also has an award
winning golf course. Sycamore
Ridge.

Lots to do and not far from where
we live!


Tomorrow is T. So trot on back
and see where we are headed.


P.S. It is National Jelly Bean Day!
What is your favorite jelly bean?

  1. Thanks for this post. It's nice for me to read and learn about another part of this wonderful country. I may never get to visit there, but I feel as though I have learned about those places.

    My favorite jelly bean would have to be the Jelly Belly pear flavored ones. Anything pear... I love pears :)

  2. I can't remember the last jelly bean I ate so I don't know what my favorite flavor is! Spring hill sounds very nice. You are lucky to live close by. Rock Hill, I'm very familiar with since I'm in St Louis often. Twyla
