Turkey Creek. In a normal year, water fills it bank
to bank. Now the creek bed is hidden in the shadows.
Turkey Creek flows by in the foreground. The meadow
is where Foss stood before being swept away by the flood of 1902.
The First Baptist Church, built of native stone, still in active
use, and still minus its bell tower and steeple.
The new town of 1902 got a new two-story six-room school, which was used until the last school was built in 1923 of brick on School House Hill.
All that remains on School House Hill are the school's
front steps, and a couple planters and benches.
Though the school has been gone 55 years, a few floor
tiles still cling tenaciously to the concrete floor.
