3 Things to Do in Fredericktown

There are many interesting and fun shops along the main street and court square in historic Fredericktown. Recently, Davy and I got to spend the afternoon walking the streets and popping in and out of shops like Main Street Memories Antiques and Collectibles, The Flower Box (florist and gifts), Thal’s Hardware and many more!3 Things to Do in Fredericktown

We got to stop in at the new location of The Mustard Seed Mercantile, a quaint boutique on East Main street. Owned and operated by Laci, with help from her friend Megan, we had the pleasure to chat with them when we stopped by to browse the diverse collection of clothing, jewelry and one-of-a-kind gifts.

From scarves to candles, shoes, mugs, full outfits and home decor, The Mustard Seed has something for every taste! They have a fun, romantic and rustic style that is accentuated now in their new location with high ceilings, gorgeous tin tiles, and wood floors.

There are many places to eat in Downtown Fredericktown! Right next door to The Mustard Seed is the Olympic Steakhouse, ‘Home of the Half-Price Steak’, with New China Chinese Restaurant just across the street.

Just off the square, Davy and I found the Dairy Bar. A drive up/walk up burger and fry joint that had an old school air about it. Once we were making our order, we realized they offer way more than just burgers and fries! Fried okra, green beans, cauliflower, a whole Mexican menu, chili, hot dogs, waffle fries and more. Not to mention their long list of ice cream options!

We got our order and headed a couple blocks over to enjoy our lunch at the Azalea park!

As we drove down Main street, we noticed a sign that indicated City Lake Park was just a little over a mile away. With a bit of help from a city worker (who happened to be working on the side of the road) and our GPS, we were able to make it to the lake and park.

Neither Davy nor I had even heard of this park before and were glad to have discovered it. The lake was calm and peaceful. There were several boats out on the water, and a few young people fishing from the bank.

We made the easy walk over to the lake’s dam to see the water rushing over the spillway. It really is a beautifully designed, half moon shape, where the water tips over the edge and crashes to the large, craggy rocks below. It all drifts down into the Little St. Francois river.

With picnic tables, pavilions, paved and rustic walking trails, swings, fishing, and boating; there is something for the whole family here.
