Near Marceline in Linn County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
A Private Residence
"I went with my family to live in Marceline when I was four years old...I clearly remember the day we arrived there on the train. A Mr. Coffman met us in his wagon and we rode out to our house in the country just outside the city limits. I believe it was called the Crane Farm. My first impression of it was that it had a beautiful front yard."
It was on the side of this house that Walt Disney painted with black pitch talking his sister into adding big zigzags by promising it would come right off. Walt remembered, "I wasn't thanked by the family for my efforts."
