NAME: Claud
CLIMATE: Snow in winter. Sometimes miserable in winter. Creeks flood valleys
BEST TIME TO VISIT: All year long. Beautiful Ozark country side.
COMMENTS: Current residents, none.Go west on County road N from Humansville (on Missouri 13) toward Caplinger Mills. Claud is about 9 miles from Humansville. You will see an old country store front on the left going west.
REMAINS: The store was run by Henry Burchett in the thirties. His brother, Walter, lived accross the road on the north side. Shady Hill School is about a quarter of a mile to the east and is still standing. I attended school there from 1937 to 1943.
I do not know the origin nor much of the history, except that it once had a post office and was on the maps of Missouri through the forties. If anyone has an interest, please contact me. Submitted by: Frank Goodman, The Senior
