Cannon County to woodbury

This gallery starts out as I entered into Cannon County headed towards Woodbury on Hwy 146. Any road that will take you to Woodbury is an enjoyable drive. All but one is a windy and hilly two lane road, well worth the time. You'll pass beautiful farms, homes, and landscapes as you travel along these state roads and back roads.

Woodbury is a busy downtown on Saturdays with some great shops and eateries. The courthouse, situated in the center of town, was completed in 1935 and is still in use today. On the side streets you can find more antique stores and unique shops well worth exploring. Stop by the Chamber of Commerce and pick up some informative brochures and maps to learn more about their history and their unique place in the Civil War. Woodbury sits at the base of the Highland Rim and is reminiscent of days gone by, but has a strong business community moving Woodbury forward.

As you enter into Cannon County the roads just seem to flow with the hillsLooking back around the bendMost of the historic markers reflect Cannon County's role in the Civil WarProgress - but I wonder what the farmer calls it
I have always admired this cemetery as it sits atop its own hillThe Cannon County Courthouse, built in 1935The architectural style was based on the Colonial Revival periodHidden on one of the side streets, but apparently well visited
Not only do they sell nice antiques, but uncomfortable chairs as wellI'm thinking old jail cellLooking east from the backside of the courthouseLooking west down Main Street, Hwy 70s
