To the Moon, Wilberforce

A couple days ago, I bought a book titled Douglas County Historic Building Survey-A Photo Sampler at an antique mall and considering it's a book featuring pictures of old buildings and houses, I knew I had to have it. What interesting is that out of 115 entries in the book, 98 are still standing. I expected to see more houses and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and buildings that I thought were historic. But the book does feature buildings I've never been able to get history on including this one that used to be part of a brewery.

I was a little disappointed that the Simmons Stage Station wasn't included in the book.
The Simmons Stage Station, a resting spot on the Santa Fe Trail along Highway 56.
It always seems out of character for Wilberforce to rail against his parents. But then again, Wilberforce just wants to stay up a little bit later and Brutus is making a Federal case out of it.
