Leased for 2019

Little Texas Farm, Reevesville, Illinois

Railroad tracks mark the west border of the farm.  Prior to the demise of the steam engine, Reevesville was a rail link in both southern Illinois and on the north-south line.  Trains would stop here for water and coal; restaurants fed the crews.  The coal tower still stands across a track just east of town.
