On day four, most of the group went to Huddle House for breakfast then for a tour of Bryan College. William Jennings Bryan obviously made an impact on Dayton during the Scopes Monkey Trial as they named the college after him and believe it or not, one of our club members went there (even though he lived in Ohio) and he arranged for a tour. Bryan is a small private Christian college with about 800 students and an academic staff of 200 full and part time. Their endowment is $6 million vs Harvard’s $51 billion.
Nothing was planned for the afternoon then we went to supper at the Screen Door Kitchen which had been recommended along with the dishes to consider ordering. The restaurant is on the ground floor of an old home and the family lives upstairs.
Everyone seemed satisfied with their meals.
After supper, it was a drive around town as it was being set up for the annual Strawberry Festival and I thought Dayton was a nice little town with the main area about four blocks long and two blocks wide.
And, of course, we ended the night with a fire but in this case two propane versions, one of which was a middle eastern camel-dung-burner used by nomads to heat their tents.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
