This monument sits across from the Depot in Leary. It’s dedicated to Phillip Edward Boyd, and the inscription says “33 Years Dedicated to Leary 1878-1908″. I know that Boyd was a decorated Civil War veteran, but that’s about all I can find. If anyone has anymore information it is greatly welcomed!
This is the view of Leary from the Boyd Memorial. Notice the well kept Amerits Bank with the cars out front.
Through the grapevine I’ve learned this building was an old Ford dealership. I’m unsure when it was abandoned. (Private Property)
This tiny church sits on a dead-end road in a residential section of Leary.
These homes have since been painted eye catching colors, sadly this covers up some of the more interesting architectural features. (Private Property)
Here’s a view of both of Edison’s water towers.
This church seems to be unused. The sign in front says that the church was renovated in 1984. Notice the new water-tower in the background.
