Blink-and-it’s-gone/Thursday Doors

Rural Missouri is defintely close to my heart and makes me homesick every single time I stop and reflect in places like this.

Just a rural ‘blocked’ door photo from Bahner, Missouri. The old Dodge “Door” is in full view though.

Missouri has many of these “Blink-and-it’s-gone” communities. Pettis County, my residence, is no exception. I grew up less than a mile from one. (future doorscursion) They remain for the most part unchanged except for the weathering of the wood and metal adornments.

From Wikipedia:

“Bahner is an unincorporated community in Pettis County, Missouri, United States. It is located at 38°34′10″N 93°7′43″W(38.5694640, -93.1285358), and its altitude is 886 feet (270 m).[2]

A post office called Bahner was established in 1882, and remained in operation until 1907.[3] Edward Bahner, an early postmaster, most likely gave the community his name.[4]

“Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world.” For other Thursday Door entries, click here and find Norm’s blue link button at the bottom of his post.
