I lived in Fredericktown, MO as a young child. We plan to drive across the USA in our Chevrolet, this summer. I would like to visit my childhood home in Fredericktown.

I want to find out if it still exists (it was an old victorian style) of if a shopping mall is there.

The house was at 210 West College Avenue . . . as I recall.

If anyone can assist me, I'd sure appreciate your efforts.

Sunshine Gal

I'm not that familiar with Fredericktown, although I live app. 45 minutes away.
There have been some changes made, but not too many shopping malls.

Smile enjoyed your post

I don't live in MO, but was checking out their forums to see if I could find any information about one of my favorite childhood memories--growing up in Creve Coeur. We actually only lived there 4 years, but I still remember our address--36 Deerfield Lane (no zip codes back then.) My early years there left lasting memories.
I hope you find your childhood home!

Smile Google Maps

Here's something fun to try...I went to Google - clicked on maps and put 210 W. College Ave., Fredericktown, MO in the search. I was quickly shown a street map with the arrow pointing to 210 W. College. I clicked again on Satellite for the actual satellite pic of the property. It's hard to tell if it is a house, but it isn't a shopping mall. The roof looks black and it is fairly large.

You might also try rootsweb.com and post a question about the property in the Madison County forum (right county?). Surely someone on that site is familiar enough with Fredericktown to be able to provide you with some info.

Fredericktown was named after George Frederick Bollinger, right? I descend from 2 of his brothers - apparently there weren't a lot of choices when it came to pioneers finding spouses...cousins married cousins. My Grandma was a Bollinger from Bollinger County.

Good Luck!

Default I Have Family In Fredericktown

My Brother-in-law Lives In Fredericktown. He coached basketball at the high school for a number of years. I guess anyone that lived there would know the McMahon family.
My sister, Pat, passed away in 2006, we miss her so very much.
I don't get back to visit, but I always loved that neat little town. When Pat died, the people were so nice to all of us.
If you get back to Fredericktown, please stop in to see Coach Mc...I am sure he would be glad to see or hear from any of his former students.

Default From Fredericktown

Not a whole lot has changed within the City Limits of Fredericktown. There are some changes out on the edges of town - a new Wal-Mart, new restaurant, etc., but within town - not much, so no problems with a
"shopping center" being built where the house is... I still have family there and try to go back at least once a year.
