New pages on Ozarks architecture


I’m fascinated with the way buildings are constructed, especially when they show techniques requiring imagination, unusual craftsmanship and great beauty. I also like the offbeat.

I’ve added two pages today under the Diversions heading.

One is about the stonework on Downing Street in Hollister, Missouri.

The other is about an unusual small building on Highway 160 south of Highlandville. This building is constructed in the manner of stovewood architecture, in which lengths of firewood are set in mortar.

Please take a look.
