TH12 Town poster

TH12 Town poster
Our tiny town.
Top left- View into "downtown" that consists of the church, a bar, the abandoned town offices building and the volunteer fire dept station.
Top right- the town's claim to fame. Pole raising during presidential elections.
Middle left- Tank at the VFW hall
Middle right- Cemetery that has more residents than the town!
Bottom left- The old church run school, now abandoned for the new facility built across the highway.

We have ONE police officer that works out of a room at the gas station. When he's not on duty, the county handles the calls. St Leon is not large enough for a post office, so even though we live in that town, our mail has to go through the nearest larger city with a post office (a 15 min. drive on the back country roads). Most residents have an acre or more of land as that is in the rules for residential property from back when everyone had to have their own septic system. But a few apartment buildings have been built recently within the town limits near the highway. Lots of farm crop land and a few livestock farms.
It's a nice place to live and feels secluded while still being relatively close to the metropolitan city of Cincinnati.

I like the combination of snow and sunshine here! The most colourful place seems to be the cemetery! Hmmm. Odd to see the Stars & Stripes hanging outside an abandoned facility.

The old school is still on the property of the current church, but I wouldn't be surprised if a neighbor took care of the flag.

I would think that it would be kind of nice to live in a town that needs only one police officer! The "downtown" view in the top picture is appealing.
