A Brazeau Christmas
The tiny community of Brazeau (pronounced BRAZ-o) nestles between Longtown and Frohna in eastern Perry County, 25 miles north of Cape Girardeau as the crow flies. For the sixth year, many of the 23 residents and others who live in the area have pitched in to decorate the town for today's Christmas Walk.
They put Santa Claus figurines in Carrie's Tea Room, where visitors will be offered desserts. The bank, built in 1919 and long closed, contains 23 Christmas trees today.
From 3 to 8 p.m. today an estimated 500 visitors will tour the town and its historic buildings, including the 1852 Presbyterian Church, where the choirs from St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Cape Girardeau and Concordia Lutheran Church of Frohna will sing.
The Brazeau Museum, which housed the town's elementary and high school before the students went elsewhere, and Hemman Winery, formerly the town store, will offer must-see stops.
The $5 tickets can be bought at the Community Hall. Proceeds will go toward renovating the historic buildings in a town where community and Christmas spirit truly will be on display today.
