Welcome To ColebridgeColebridge, Missouri is a fictional town located along the Missouri River. As a Missouri native and author, I have traveled the stateA Colebridge Collage enjoying its beauty and quality of life. It has a historic Main Street lined with specialty shops, quaint eateries, and professional businesses. Its parks and neighborhoods are out of a story book!

Colebridge is full of interesting characters. Some still reside here, and some remain only in spirit! As you get to know them, they may resemble folks in your own community.

Thank you for visiting Colebridge. It's where the bridge connects the past to the future! Please come back again.
