Jon Ingram ventured out to Hermann on a beautiful Sunday morning for a fiddling competition. He came back with more than music in his ears; he uncovered much about the culture in this mid-Missouri town.
On this 4040 Project KBIA's Darren Hellwege takes us on a visit to the little town with friendly people and a name that's easy to bungle. Auxvasse is home to about 900 people, two convenience stores, one friendly bar and grill, and for Missy and her neighbors it's the love of those other people that makes Auxvasse a special place. For them, no matter how you pronounce it, they call it "home."
