Milltown, Columbia On Collision Course
This article first appeared in issue 9, and was written by Ed Waggener.
What will happen when Milltown and Columbia finally butt boundaries?
Which will swallow which?
The meeting appears inevitable.
At one time, Milltown was at least 6 miles from the Adair County Courthouse in Columbia.
Now the distance is only 2.9 miles from the city limits of Columbia at Petty's Fork Bridge on Hwy 61 to the Milltown Post Office.
What's happened: Columbia expanded and Milltown's Post Office was moved November 4, 1995, from its traditional location in Russell Creek Valley to the high ground at Ricky Rodgers' Dinner Bell Restaurant in the New Milltown Mall. There, Ricky Rodgers is proprietor and postmaster, his sister Ronica Herron is assistant postmaster. Their mother, Joyce Downey Rodgers runs one of the finest kitchens in Adair County.
