Come August, the town of Climax Springs, Mo. — population about 100 — may vote itself out of existence. Dissolution of the town into surrounding Camden County is expected to be up for a vote by residents. The hope is that the county will take over maintenance of the roads. Eugene Dority, the village’s former road commissioner, is one of the few residents who thinks Climax Springs shouldn’t dissolve. “After it does happen, they’ll regret it,” he predicts. Here is his home; he has a plot of land where miniature mules and ponies graze. Dority also used to have a salvage business.
