I found this site and had to explore. I grew up in Bourbon and went to First Baptist Church. We lived in Lakewood Mobile Home Park (still there) and shopped at Town and Country Grocery (still there). I am planning a summer vacation for 2016 and plan to bring my husband and son to see the little town I grew up in. I can't wait to see there eyes when we visit Meremac Caverns and Onondaga Cave! Stay small Bourbon! There is just not enough of the small hometowns left anymore.

I found some old graves at Metcalf cemetery. Also, William Henderson Summers from 1850 and Susie Summers had new stones so they were moved from the old home place at Brazil Creek. Anyone have information?

I am working on a biography of John T. Woodruff (1868-1949). His parents,
George and Susan Woodruff, homesteaded northwest of Bourbon in the 1870s,
then built and ran the Bourbon Hotel. If anyone in Bourbon has any
information about the Woodruff family, please contact me. Thanks.

I have very fond memories of Bourbon Missouri. My father had cousins (Frank and Tony Herzy) that lived there. In the 1950's my family would get into our 1954 chevy and drive to Bourbon. Back then this was a long ride and when we would see the water tower my dad would ask if we knew which side of the road it was on, we never could remember. I can remember there was this long gravel road that we took down a steep hill to get to Frank's farm. Infact I don't think it was his farm, he worked on it. The farm belonged to his wife Bud's family. There were horses, cows, every animal you could imagine was on this farm. During harvest it was very busy filling the silos. I have since tried to find this farm but can't. I have this gravel road and steep hill pictured in my mind but can not find it.

My comment on the decision to not go forward with red light cameras, published in the mysullivannews

This is excellent news for the residents and visitors of Bourbon. Red light cameras are NEVER about safety, they are always about money. They are profitable ONLY when the traffic lights are deliberately mis-engineered to cause more tickets and/or when the enforcement rules specifically target mostly safe drivers.

Some 57 California cities have now either ended red light camera programs or banned them before they got started. Ticket cameras have lost 27 of 30 public votes. People uniformly hate them once they see the true predatory revenue purpose for them.

Congratulations to a wise Council.

Hello Bourbon!
My life as a child there,has me continually reflecting and sometimes searching for the significant things from my past.
I would love for anyone to help me locate info about "Bourbon Beacon",the newspaper and printings from 1971-1974. I think I'm specifically looking for issues for mos. Sept-Dec,1974.
An article written by Mrs Keaney maybe called,"Nuttin,no not nuttin."
Can anyone help me?
Love the website!
