Over the past few days, I've been thumbing through a number of history books about Hannibal, Ralls County, and Quincy. Quincy: A Pictorial History by Carl Landrum is an excellent resource for anyone that likes to read about local history. Here are five interesting facts I've picked up from the book.
Local history is something I always find interesting. A member of our staff has a collection of books on Hannibal, Quincy and Ralls County history, and was kind enough to let me take a look through them. The one I'm reading right now is Hannibal: The Otis Howell Collection by Steve Chou. Not only is the book full of great pictures from the late 1940s through about 1970, but the captions are incredibly informative. Here are a few interesting pieces of information I've picked up from the book.
Did you know that Ralls County, Missouri is the only Ralls County in the United States? A co-worker was kind enough to lend me a few books on local history, including Ralls County by K. Allen Ballard, part of Arcadia Publishing's Images of America series. There are a ton of great pictures dating all the way back to the early 1800s published in the book, and it is also full of information about the county, its people and its economy. Here are just a few interesting things I learned from flipping through it.
Y101 will be traveling all around the Tri-States during the summer, and we’re bringing food! The first Backyard BBQ of 2015 will be in Hannibal on May 27. How would you like to host a free BBQ for you and 100 of your friends? We’ll bring the food, we’ll bring the music, we’ll bring prizes, you pick the place!
Another Dogwood Festival is in the history books. We hope everyone had a great weekend, and had a great time at the parade and the festival, despite the slight rain delay for live music on Saturday night.
Imo's Pizza is coming to Quincy. It's been a while since we've heard much news about the progress of Imo's. The last information I saw said that they were planning on opening around the first of June. I did notice that Imo's has posted a help wanted sign along the road at 36th and Broadway.
Hannibal's historic entertainment venues - a few of which are still operational - have hosted every type of celebrity there is. Some of the most famous stars of stage, screen, and vaudeville have performed in America's Hometown.
