Farmhouses Before the Great Flood of 1993

Life in the Chamois and Morrison River Bottoms

A display of pictures and stories from the book by Susan Sundermeyer

Farmhouses Sign
The sixteen-mile strip of Missouri River bottom land from above Chamois, Missouri, to below Morrison, Missouri, was once populated with many farmhouses that sheltered the families living the American Dream of Farming. Now, only a few are left. The Mighty Missouri has had her way. Sharing the stories, pictures and histories of these families and their homes, FARMHOUSES is a recollection and a collection of the many who lived the dream, fought the river, and survived to tell about it. More than 100 Missouri River Bottom folks-- both past and present--have contributed to this work. Work was hard, shared, most times successful, sometimes not.
