Meet Me Down On Main Street

The L.A. Times has posted an interesting photo essay comparing the main thoroughfares of Disneyland and Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri.

Marceline has changed a lot since the Disney family moved away a full century ago; as the article points out, the train doesn’t stop there anymore unless you make a special request. The town’s population of 2,500 is well under five percent of Disneyland’s daily capacity. Yet efforts to revive the area’s sagging economy continue; the Walt Disney Hometown Museum now occupies the old rail depot and helps keep Walt’s Missouri legacy alive.
