|A Rural Survey of Morgan County, Missouri (1916)||<Previous|
To speak of Morgan county and yet fail to mention the wonderful attractiveness and rare beauty of much of the county, especially that south from Versailles to the Morgan county line, marked in part by the Osage river, would be a serious omission. Few counties have a greater wealth of natural scenery. There are clear, swiftly-flowing streams, with rapids and waterfalls and numerous caves and caverns, some of which have been explored to a considerable distance.
To the hunter and fisherman, or to the lover of nature, whoever he may be, this great playground, in many parts unspoiled by the hand of man and almost unchanged by the march of civilization, appeals most strongly.
