Ten Mile Garden, Highway 61, Between Cape Girardeau and Jackson, Missouri, circa 1950s. Over 25,000 roses were planted. Later expansion of the highway system caused the rose garden to disappear. The previous city motto, City of Roses by the River stemmed from these famous flowers. :: Postcard Collection
