Parkville on a Summer Evening

I am including a few pictures from a recent trip to Parkville, which is south of where I live, and located along the Missouri River. It's primarily known as the location for a private university and a scenic park along the river; otherwise, the town features expensive restaurants, pricey grocery stores, and expensive houses. It reminds me of a town located outside of Hartford, Connecticut--Glastonbury, for example. Some homes in Parkville can be purchased for $100,000, which seems to be the low end; there are many more homes listed for four or five times that amount, with one currently priced at the upper end and going for $1,500,000. Oddly, this highest priced home is located near a major highway. I would prefer more seclusion if I had that kind of money to spend on a house.
