following is an excerpt from Missouri: A Guide to the 'Show Me' State,
1941 in the Tour 13 section the passage is about Caledonia:
Its two most pretentious homes are the Jane Thompson House, a two-story
brick building with a Classic-Revival doorway, erected in 1848, and the Martin
Ruggles House, also a two-story brick dwelling with Classic-Revival details,
built in 1852 to "surpass the grandeur" of the Thompson house.
The house is a contributing property in the Caledonia Historical District on
the National Register of Historic Places. The house is currently vacant,
listed for sale and in need of some attention.
