Many of the buildings are old, and very elegant. This building is an example of the age of many buildings that are well kept and used.
It is a quaint town, built on hills, actually it is in The Endless Mountains.
My two favorite stores on main street are both named The Butler's Pantry, both owned by the same couple.
The other Butler's Pantry is actually "owned" by Goldie, a female cat that is a rescue animal. She belonged to the pet store next door, and then was adopted by The Butler's Pantry owners. She is independent, of course; I had to get on my belly, and crawl under a table to get a picture of her under the Christmas Tree. I have been in the store often enough, and petted her enough to where she comes out to talk to me when I come in.
I will try to get a better picture of her eyes; she looks like the Cheshire Cat in Alice and Wonderland.
This store features dishes, decorator items and baby things.
In between the two Butler's Pantry stores are a health food store and a pet store.
Montrose even has a book shop. Amazing that The Book Shoppe can survive in the age of Amazon and Abe Books.
I work out at Snake Creek with Danielle Arnold, who once upon a time ran "The Original", as she calls it.
The Montrose Inn is right across from the Original. We haven't eaten there yet, but they say it is special.
You can dine in or out at the Original or the Inn.
When I have time I want Bobby to take me to the movies! It was a sweltering 75 degrees (that's what the locals thought anyway).
There is so much rain that flowers grow easily, and are everywhere.
Pretty vegetation grows out of the cracks in the sidewalk!
Sometimes I get away from work to attend this church. All the churches I have seen are big, and old.
Montrose is beautiful, old, and the people are friendly and loving. I recommend you visit this little town.
