Home Town Pride: Chappell, NE

I love reading small town signs.  They are so full of pride and can tell you everything you need to know about the people who live there.  Let me start a new series today to document and share some of the best I've seen..


Love it!

  12. Love this sign! Honestly, I don't think I've paid much attention to these signs in the past. Definitely going to be keeping an eye out for them now to see what I can glean about the town's personality.

  13. I haven't really seen many signs as I don't drive or really travel much but this makes me want to keep a look out when I enter a small town.

  14. My husband and I have taken quite a few long distance driving trips and we love looking at the different town or city signs and the state signs. Next trip, I will take a few pictures myself. A great way to document a trip!

    I used to take a lot pictures of the signs when we lived in Europe. I still will stop and take one every now and again.

  19. Oh my goodness, there are some of the most hilarious signs in Europe-we've spent entire afternoons trying to figure out what the pictures mean. Thanks for jogging my memory, I totally need to pull out some of those as well!

  20. Definitely do! Even if it's just a sign with the name and elevation or population, you can still learn something!

  21. Corinne, I'm curious for you to start with your own town's sign or slogan. I'd love to hear it!

  27. That's a great sign and a great way to remember how to spell the city name! What fun!

  28. Great sign. I love small towns. I remember when I graduated high school, my husband (my best friend at the time) drove from New Jersey to upstate New York. He still gets a giggle to this day over reading the sign when he approached our home. "Welcome to the village of Medina." He loves to say that he always thought that only Africa has villages!

    Love your point about small town signs...never thought about it before but I agree! I love small towns in general... very nostalgic and so much more comfortable than bigger cities. :)

  30. I love this... our town used to say a place where you live, work and pray. They have since changed it but I loved that motto when we had it!
