The Best Town in the Best County

We are thinking of our friends in Skidmore, Missouri today. It’s a repeat, but it bears repeating, so we’ll share an unbiased opinion from the editor of the Skidmore Standard, as printed in the April 26, 1901 edition of that paper:

A stranger in our city Saturday was heard to ask: “What is going on here today that there are so many people in town?”  When told that it was a common occurrence in Skidmore when the weather is good, he seemed greatly surprised and said that he had been in a large number of towns in this and adjoining states, but had never seen so many people in a town of this size at one time in all his experience.  Had he remained here a day or two longer he would have found out for himself that Skidmore is the best town situated in the best county, in the best state in the United States.
