Today we add a new town to Lacey County. Lacey's Cove is a bayside tourist attraction to the west of Laceyville. Here we can see it from a satellite view.

As with the other areas of the county, Lacey's Cove also has deep roots in agriculture.

But it's pristine shore along Richards Bay provided the residents with tourism opportunities. A boardwalk and beach area was developed shortly after the turn of the century. A vacation spot for residents from all over Lacey County.

Funding for the waterfront district, with its cobblestone streets and paved parking areas, put the crunch on road construction in the rest of the town. The wealthy must deal with the same gravel streets that their not so well off neighbors have to use.

Boardwalk Square Park is a great place to relax when you're not fishing, shopping, or getting a sunburn on the beach.

And now for some shots of suggestions from the commentary on previous entries. Thanks again for pointing me to the custom content. Below is the latest view of the Westridge Business District.

I really like the rural freight train depots.

Laceyville got a couple new freight stations as well...

Laceyville also had to start dealing with it's garbage. A landfill has opened on the north side of town.

That about does it for this update. Some credit where credit is due now...

Keep the advice coming, I want to get better!
