Was this that old yellow house on the corner of Scott St. and Church St.? I used to live in that house years ago but have since moved from Missouri. I was just wandering which house that is. It sure is a shame when an house that old burns up.

I don't know if u are replying to me, But please understand that I do not really no why u are getting upset. I just was trying to also figure out if it was that house. I had a friend that liverd there with some guy and I think the house might have belonged to his father, sorry again,I was jsut going to email my friend about the house< but I can always just look when I go to New Madrid, PS Maybe you shouldn't jump to conclusions that everyone has something bad to say or Start something, Which U was the one that brought it up.

That house caught fire over a month ago, unless it was burned to the ground just to get rid of it.

Hate it because it was a gorgeous home with lots of potential with the right people living there to take care of it.:(

About 25 junk cars at the salvage yard north of town.
