So the towns of the ride home from college get their turn now.
|Woodford GOP headquaters|
Eureka College's campus is a about a mile south of the center of the town of Eureka, which is dominated by the stately Woodford County courthouse--it was built in 1897.
Reagan would like this--the Woodford County Republican Headquarters is on Main Street--the road from campus--and is in sight of the beautiful courthouse. US Route 24, which begins in Clarkston, Michigan and ends near Minturn, Colorado, passes through the center of Eureka and is appropriately known as Center Street. US Route 24 takes us to the next stop on the Reagan Trail--the town of Washington.
UPDATE June 29: I just discovered the Reagan Trail YouTube channel. The Eureka selection gives a visitor's perspective of the Reagan Museum, which I wrote about in my prior post in this series.
