Long Description:

County of spring house: Barry County
Location of spring house: Farm Rd. 2020, 7 miles SW from Crane, MO. Operated by John J. Smith. Followed Flat Creek to Crouch's Station.

The Actual Station remains are just North of the Road and sign with a sign on it indicating the spot.

Talked with a couple of local farmers in around the ghost town of Osa, and got a sense of where the old Drywoods Thrashers marker would be located. Talked with the home owner, he gave me permission to walk around his property and photo what I want, as long as what I was doing "did not bring a pack of fools to tramp on his ground." He was very knowledgeable about the stop.
