Farmington's "Field of Dreams"?
July 31-- With all the commercial, governmental, and private development going on in the Farmington area, it might be easy to overlook the fact that the basis of our town's economy has long been tied to agriculture. If one needs reminding, it might be worthwhile to take a quick drive along the edge of town next to the Sports Complex on Walter Street -- which connects Ste. Genevieve Ave. with South Flemming Street. On the left side of the road lies a beautiful (and seemingly perfect) field of corn -- which is mainly located just east of the city limits. Given the fact that this cornfield is located next to four ball fields (baseball and softball), movie star Kevin Costner could suggest that this is Farmington's own "Field of Dreams."
