Experience a piece of Howard County’s history through Shannon’s 18″ x 24″ pastel painting on board, aptly titled “Pepper Mill.” This artwork offers a genuine trail view of the renowned clay tile grain elevator, fondly referred to by some as the “pepper mill,” situated along the scenic Katy Trail in Missouri. Located between the towns of Rocheport and New Franklin, this architectural relic stands as a testament to the region’s agricultural heritage.
