Modoc's adventure here.
The old drug store now bears the name 'Modoc's Market' and serves specialty coffees, cold drinks, and snacks, and sells elephant-themed gifts and circus memorabilia. The elephant sculptures outside commemorate that 1942 incident when Modoc made her famous visit to downtown Wabash, Indiana.
We checked in to our room at the Charley Creek Inn, which is situated right between Modoc's Market and the beautiful Honeywell Center, where Sandi would perform.
Rich and Becky met us to have dinner and attend the concert together, and they arrived at the hotel first and headed to the on-site wine shop for a little tasting. Walking through the lobby, I noticed this plate, which documents another Wabash, Indiana claim to fame, as the First Electrically Lighted City in the World. Bet you didn't know that!
I thought Modoc's Market looked especially nice after sundown. There are renovated apartments on the second floor.Twenty Restaurant in the hotel, it was time for the concert!
She gave her usual good show, singing some of our favorites and inviting the audience to sing along.
Back at the hotel, we noticed some of the rooms had familiar names. Hail Purdue!
