Darren Hellwege takes us on a Sunday morning visit to Boonville. We find a church where the ministry is a family affair, and some old friends who are a part of a great music scene in Cooper County. They all share a love of their neighbors, and of the history of this friendly river town.
Russellville is a small town of about 800 people on the rural outskirts of Jefferson City. A bedroom community for some is a vibrant, tight-knit culture for others. As a former railroad town Russellville has struggled to grow and to stay relevant. But it’s still got a strong sense of itself and hope for its future.
Jefferson City can sometimes be thought as the smaller town next to Columbia, but it has it's own rich history even beyond being the state capital. Nobody knows the history, and tells its stories better than Bob Priddy, whose "Across Our Wide Missouri" series of books are full of the narrative of our state's past.
