Clarinda is a town square town, I have early 1900s postcards that show it looking pretty much the same. Businesses have definitely taken a hit, and too many buildings are empty and worn, sadly I own one of those empty worn buildings, hopefully to see new life this summer. Mine is the little white building with the blue trim, plywood over the windows. It does have a new roof and is gutted down to the old brick inside, new windows and floors are on the agenda this year, once it is finished, its going to be gorgeous. Glenn Miller Festival just started, so sad our Japanese orchestra will not come because of all the disasters their country has faced, hope to see them again next year.
The Colonial White House is the local B and B, prettiest gardens in town!
