When we think of what goes on in the minds of 5- to 6-year-olds we tend to envision lemonade stands, candy, unicorns, running through sprinklers or whatever is hot on television at the moment. What we do not expect is that 5 to 6-year-olds are learning how to develop their moral compasses and are very pre-occupied with what is right or fair. As parents, grand-parents, aunts, uncles, when something such as a toy or treat is given to a sibling but not to them we often hear those words, “that’s not fair.”

William Lyman Thomas and his 1911 History of St. Louis County, Missouri

One of the great privileges I have had in my role as historian of our small town is that of having been allowed to closely examine many of the documents and artifacts preserved by the descendants of past members of our community.  The families of our very earliest settlers, the Suttons and the Rannells, have trusted me with many of their rarest items. I am humbled by that. I take the responsibility very seriously.
