Missouri Tourism Honors Boonslick Area Tourism Council

T

he 48th Missouri Governor’s Conference on Tourism was held October 5, 2016 at The Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Independence, Mo. During the awards banquet the Boonslick Area Tourism Council was one of seven that received recognition. Boonslick Area Tourism Council was awarded the Innovator Award which is presented to smaller tourism entities that achieve great results on a limited budget. For several years, the BATC has sought to increase tourism to Central Missouri communities located in the Boonslick area; including Boonville, Fayette, Glasgow, Marshall, Rocheport, New Franklin, Arrow Rock and Blackwater. The group initiatives have included the launch of the

successful – and now annual – Boonslick Folk Festival, the Missouri River Rubber Duck Race, and tours of the Barn Quilts of the Boonslick. The tourism council also publishes and distributes 10,000 copies of the Barn Quilts of the Boonslick which promotes the barn quilt trail as well as areas of interest in Howard, Cooper and Saline counties. The Boonslick Area Tourism Council was founded in 2001 by Mary Duncan, Arrow Rock; Connie Shay, Fayette; and Tom Marshall from Marshall. The goal they envisioned would bring tourists off I-70 and away from the larger better known attractions. They felt the history of the Boonslick area was a hidden treasure and needed recognition. Through the years the Council has remained

limited in number of members but compensates with a mutual shared love of the area and dedication and hard work. With a roster of fifteen or so members and annual dues of $10 they have been able to successfully accomplish their projects on an annual budget of much less than $10,000. BATC is especially proud of this award as the other recipients were a large marketing agency from St. Louis; a media group from St. Louis with print, TV and radio outlets; the Kansas City Royals; and the Lake of the Ozarks Convention Visitors Bureau. Mary Duncan and Connie Shay, the remaining founding members were present to accept the award from Dan Lennon, Director of Missouri Tourism.

Barn Quiltsof

2. Santa Fe Wagon Trails

3. Country Farm

Richard and Carol Raynor 29117 E. Hwy. 240, Marshall

Robert Thompson Hwy. AC, 1 mile north of Arrow Rock

V. Elaine Osborn 22264 Hwy. D, Hardeman

The Raynors’ barn was one of the first to join the tour in Saline County. Carol said they chose the “Farmer’s Daughter” pattern because their farm has been passed down through the generations to daughters. “My mother inherited the farm and then I inherited it. I have four daughters and I will leave the farm to them,” she said.

This barn block is on the barn which sits on the Santa Fe Trail just north of Arrow Rock.

Elaine said she chose the “Country Farm” pattern “because it just sounded appropriate.” “We raise corn and soybeans, and we’re right out here in the middle of the country,” Elaine said. Visitors often come by or stop to take pictures. “I think it’s a great way for people that might be passing through, to give them something to do,” she said.

George and Sharon Meinershagen 13401 Hwy. ZZ, Sweet Springs

Doug and Ricci Cook 12063 126th Rd., Sweet Springs

Adam and Rita Shaw 14094 Hwy. 20, Blackburn

Sharon said she saw the barn quilt program as a good way to preserve historic barns in the area. “I think it’s a shame these old barns are disappearing” she said. Sharon designed her own block with patterns from Pennsylvania Dutch hex symbols, carefully plotting which symbols and colors to use.“I put in all positive elements,” she said.

Mildred Earnst 27200 Hwy. BB, Grand Pass

Robert Johnson 36354 E. Hwy. 240, Gilliam

Jan and John VanMeter Stapleton 31708 N. Hwy. 122, Miami

Mildred said she decided to be part of the barn quilt tour because “I thought it would be neat, and it is.” Mildred said having a square on her barn has caused her to look for others when she is driving through the country. She said she chose “Shaded Trail” because she thought it would look good on her barn.

Robert Johnson, who owned the barn when it became part of the barn quilt project, said he agreed to participate when asked because of his late wife. When shown the design options and what they stood for, Robert said he selected “Farmer’s Wife” as a tribute to his wife.

10. Arrow of Peace

11. Where the Corn Is

12. Arrow Star

Dan and Rebecca Buie 23462 N. Saline Hwy. 65, Marshall

George Harrison and Dan Finley Hwy. 65 S. & Hwy. 127, Malta Bend

Whitney and Day Kerr 37528 Hwy. TT, Arrow Rock

Rebecca said they chose “Arrow of Peace” because they wanted something that was a little different. “The idea of something that represented peace was important to me. Recognizing Native American roots in our area was also important,” she said. Rebecca likes meeting visitors who stop to get pictures as well as having the artwork on her barn.

This barn quilt is a memorial to Russell Platner from his wife Becky. “I enjoy seeing it every time I drive by it,” she said.

Day said she and her husband chose the “Arrow Star” pattern because their farm is so close to Arrow Rock. Although the house on the property was completed in 1849, Day said the existing barn was built much later – likely in the 1920s or ’30s.

Saline County 13. North Star

14. Lindbergh Plane

15. Cross and Crown

Eugene and Kay Markes 20284 Hwy. EE, Marshall

Bryan and Barbara Berlin 20363 Hwy. YY, Marshall

Nelson and Janie Weber and family 28745 N. Hwy. 41, Marshall

Kay chose the “Wandering Star” pattern, but likes the “North Star” because of the colors and because “it’s got quite a story.” The “North Star” pattern was one of several used by the Underground Railroad. It was used to signal two messages — to prepare to escape, and to follow the “North Star” to freedom in Canada.

Barbara said they chose this pattern because they had seen a quilt at a bed and breakfast in Rocheport made entirely of Lindbergh squares and they liked it. “We thought it was an interesting pattern, and we were managers at an aviation museum in Marshall,” she said.

Janie said her family was inspired to participate after seeing other barn quilts in the area and on trips to Ohio. Janie said they chose “Cross and Crown” out of a book of quilt patterns because it was credited as having been added in 1932 – the same year the barn was built on the Webers’ farm, which has been in the family for three generations.

16 Ohio Star

17. Farmers Fields

18. Medallion

Herbert and Pauline Kiehl 22530 Hwy. EE, North of Hwy. 20, Marshall

Barbara and Robert James 34188 E. Hwy. 240, Slater

Aaron and Shellee Smith At the corner of Kentucky & 116th St., Marshall

They picked the Ohio Star pattern, because Pauline was born and raised in Ohio where she met her husband. After they were married, they moved to Saline County.

Barbara James said it was seeing the quilt squares on other barns that inspired her to participate in the program. She said they chose the “Farmer’s Field” pattern because they liked it and because Robert has been a farmer his entire life.

This operation was established in 1978 by Bill & Ann McGraw and Jeff & Marie Smith. The operation grew to allow another generation Aaron & Shellee Smith. The pattern was chosen for its unique design, multitude of bright colors and the 2s logo could be highlighted in the center. The barn marks the gateway to the 2s operation at Marshall Junction.

MARSHALL FOR MORE INFO VISIT: visitmarshallmo.com

M

arshall, the Boonslick country’s largest city, sits at the western edge of the scenic region, just 10 miles north of Interstate 70 on U.S. Highway 65. This Saline County seat offers visitors a view of wellkept Victorian homes, a stately Courthouse, the renowned Indian Foothills Park, historic architecture, and bed and breakfasts. Visitors will find Missouri Valley College and a community with a rich heritage of music, education, agriculture and entrepreneurship… as well as a memorial park dedicated to an astonishing dog! And, about that dog. No trip to the Boonslick area would be complete without a pilgrimage to Marshall, where there is a statue of Jim the Wonder Dog, a Llewellyn Setter with seemingly extraordinary abilities. In the 1930’s, Jim predicted the outcomes of events

such as the Kentucky Derby and World Series. His capabilities were examined by the full Missouri House and Senate. The statue is located inside the Jim the Wonder Dog Memorial Garden, next door to the new Jim the Wonder Dog Museum and Visitor Center, across from the Marshall Courthouse. The museum will present artifacts and information on the story of Jim the Wonder Dog. Marshall is the smallest city in the U.S. with a philharmonic orchestra and offers music performances rivaling those in metropolitan areas. Bob James, the Grammy-winning jazz keyboardist, returns frequently to his hometown to perform and teach with other professional jazz musicians who grew up in Marshall. Each spring, the Bob James Jazz Fest and Clinic draws both world performers and new talent to the campus of Missouri Valley College.

Russell B. Nicholas and Howard A. Beazley created one of the most successful companies in early aviation, which is captured in a 12,000 square foot museum. The Nicholas-Beazley Airplane Co. built top-selling aircraft such as the Barling NB-3 Monoplane, as well as produced parts for Charles Lindbergh’s famous Spirit of St. Louis. Nicholas and Beazley founded the Marshall Flying School, the largest civilian flying school in the world, training more than 3,000 pilots. The museum is open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, or by appointment. Marshall is a great place to stay while visiting the Boonslick area. The Marshall area offers events and activities throughout the year as well as great accommodations at local motels and bed-andbreakfast facilities. So Come, Sit and Stay in Marshall and enjoy the Boonslick.

ARROW ROCK FOR MORE INFO VISIT: arrowrock.org lyceumtheatre.org friendsofarrowrock.com

Named the Missouri Arts Council’s Creative Community for 2017 because of its ties to artist George Caleb Bingham and the host of artistic events it puts on each year, this worldrenowned historical village on a bluff above the Missouri River is a must-see destination for anyone traveling through Boonslick country. The entire village is a National Historic Landmark and a State Historic Site. Today 56 people call Arrow Rock home, but 150 years ago this was a prosperous

Missouri River port with a population of approximately 1,000 Confederate sympathizers and several Missouri governors made Arrow Rock their home. Artist George Caleb Bingham built a house here in 1837, and Boonslick people and places became the subjects of his many portraits and paintings that depict politics and life of the Missouri River. Today visitors can enjoy a family style fried chicken dinner at the two-story brick J. Huston Tavern, built in

1834, have lunch at the reconfigured Arrow Rock Station, delight in the gourmet offerings of Chef Liz Huff at the Catalpa Restaurant, or experience Arrow Rock’s latest Wine Bar and Restaurant, Chez Trappeur. Take in a Broadway-caliber play at the 408-seat Lyceum Theatre from June through September and don’t forget the annual December production of “A Christmas Carol.” Tour Arrow Rocks’ state Historic Site Museum any day from March through

November and on weekends in the winter. Also visit the Dr. John Sappington Museum and Black History Museum, Brown Lodge, both are open for self-guided viewings. Stay in the State Park campground or a charming bed-andbreakfast after spending the day shopping for antiques, collectibles, handmade items and unique gifts, along with touring historic homes and businesses dating back to the 1880s. Check the website or call for seasonal hours.

David and Elaine Smith 1050 Hwy. 240, Fayette

The “Electric Fan” block has special significance for Martha. “That pattern was the pattern of one of my mother’s favorite quilts that she kept on her bed,” Martha said. She said she agreed to participate in the barn quilt program because she liked the idea of the tour. “I feel like it’s a worthwhile project,” Martha said. “It kind of enhances the countryside.”

It was a longtime connection that got the Wilhoit’s involved in the barn quilt program. “Our barn is well-located and I grew up in the same neighborhood as Connie Shay who painted the block”, states Robert. Edris said they chose “Farmer’s Daughter” because it has been a favorite in their family for several generations.

David knew he wanted this pattern to reflect his love of big game hunting. He has even been bear hunting as well as other big game.

This block was designed and painted by Tourism Council member, Connie Shay. The barn is located near the starting point of several trails West and she felt the design was a reflection of the pioneer spirit and movement.

Marti loves taking walks around their farm and chose this pattern and colors because they remind her of all the beautiful trees on the farm

Scotty’s mother & father-in-law wanted something special as a gift to him. He has been a volunteer fireman for many years. His sister-inlaw designed the pattern, named it in his honor and installed it as a surprise to him.

Debbie let her school students vote on her pattern.

Norma Robertson said she chose the “Dresden Plate” block for their barn because her motherin-law had a quilt with the same pattern and she liked it.“I enjoy looking at it as I go past the barn,” Norma said.

Jeff said quilt block painter, Connie Shay, a longtime customer, convinced him to participate in the barn quilt tour. Jeff said he chose “Shadow Star” because it was a little different and he thought the colors would look good on the barn — he noted some of the same colors can be seen in the trim on his buildings.

Bob and Marilyn’s daughters wanted something special to commemorate Bob’s 80th birthday and the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary. They surprised them with this pattern named Wedding Bouquet and painted it in Marilyn’s favorite color, Williamsburg Blue.

Dale said he and his wife decided to put a quilt block on their barn after their daughter had one placed on her property. “There’s a lot more interest in them than I thought there was,” Dale said. They selected “Olympia” simply because they liked the pattern. “We looked through the book and it just stood out in our minds that was the one we wanted,” he said.

Kim selected the pattern as it is one of her favorite old-fashioned patterns. She wanted the red, white and blue colors to contrast with the gray on their barn.

The Hutchinsons chose the “Weathervane” pattern for the gable-style barn (circa 19001910) in honor of Sharon’s mother, Rachel Morris Whitesitt – it is a pattern she made for one of her grandchildren. “Gran was a weather watcher all her life, as many farmers are, so this quilt pattern seemed appropriate,” Sharon said.

Fayette is home to Central Methodist University.

hen the Missouri River washed away the original town of Franklin in 1823, in the first of a series of historic floods, settlers platted Fayette in the rolling farmland of central Howard County and made it the county seat. They named the town after the Marquis de Lafayette, a French citizen who served as a general for George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Today, it is hard to find a more pastoral, peaceful community anywhere in MidMissouri, but during the Civil War, Fayette was the scene of

much mayhem. On September 24, 1864, William “Bloody Bill” Anderson and George Todd led about 250 proSouthern guerrillas in an attack upon 40 or so Union troops stationed in Fayette, which was decidedly pro-Southern in its popular sympathies. Thirteen of Anderson’s men died in the unsuccessful attack, while the Union forces lost only one killed. The state has placed a commemorative marker on the campus of Central Methodist University (CMU), just north of downtown Fayette. More than 1,000 students attend

oming from the west at night on Highway 240, drivers first see Glasgow as a chain of sparkling lights along the Missouri River bluff ahead of them, like a fairy kingdom hovering in midair. In the early 1800s, Glasgow, named after one of its 13 founders, was one of the most prosperous towns in Missouri. Wealthy planters grew hemp and tobacco in the scenic hills along the river. Many of their beautiful antebellum homes remain today. The town was a vibrant steamboat port, in the best tradition of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. By the time the Civil War changed everything, Glasgow comprised two drug stores, five churches, a law office, a bank, a barber shop, two hotels, a shoe factory, a newspaper and, in the finest spirit of the age, SIX saloons.

In 1864, Confederate forces under General Sterling Price brought war to the bustling town, fighting a bloody battle with Union troops defending the town on October 15. Before surrendering Glasgow to the Confederates, the Union forces blew up their ammunition dump in the courthouse, destroying about half of the buildings downtown. After the war, Glasgow rebounded and became the site of the world’s first all-steel bridge, built in 1879 by the Chicago & Alton railroad. Today, downtown Glasgow is a charming place. You can easily walk through all of the downtown, visiting the charming shops and restaurants housed in the rebuilt city. Don’t forget to visit the Lewis Library, the second oldest library in Missouri (opened in 1867) and the oldest in continuous use west of the Mississippi. There’s an old-time soda fountain inside the state’s oldest family operated pharmacy. A winery overlooks the swirling river, and several bed-and-breakfasts provide comfort to weary travelers. Antebellum and Victorian houses sprinkle the countryside.

NEW FRANKLIN FOR MORE INFO VISIT: newfranklinmo.org

T

here are two towns named Franklin in the Boonslick country, but the original town of Franklin which was chartered in 1816 and was a hub of activity is no more. It was the largest town west of the Mississippi River and became the starting off point for the Santa Fe Trail when William Becknell organized the first Santa Fe trek that left Franklin on Sept. 1, 1821. The Missouri River floods of 1826 and 1828 caused the abandonment of the town of Franklin. New Franklin was built up the hill and was chartered in 1828 where it became a railroad town. The town of Franklin Junction (currently Franklin) was built as a railroad hub a few years later. The Katy Trail State Park runs through both communities and there is a trailhead just south of downtown New Franklin and overnight camping at the Katy Roundhouse

Campground. The town is known as the four trails because the Katy Trail State Park, Boonslick Road, Santa Fe Trail and Lewis and Clark Trail all converge here. History waits in every direction in downtown New Franklin. You can visit the South Howard County Museum or the kiosk’s in downtown New Franklin. Just down the hill on the Katy Trail a caboose reminds us of the railroad history of the town. There you will also find granite monuments depicting William Becknell, Josiah Gregg, Kit Carson, Ezekial Williams, Millie Cooper and George Caleb Bingham who all lived in Franklin. (Photo on next page.) On Highway 87 you will see markers telling the story about the town of Franklin and a flag pole in a farmer’s field that shows where the center of town was. It was the home of the Santa Fe Trail and the

Missouri Intelligencer – the first newspaper west of the Mississippi River. The history of music is also apparent in this small town. You can visit the grave of Edgar “Jelly” Settle, author of the “Missouri Waltz” the state’s official song (perhaps originally titled the “Graveyard Waltz”) in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. The Thomas Hickman House, 1819, located on the grounds of the MU Horticulture & Agroforestry Research Center at the western edge of town, is the oldest known brick building west of the Mississippi River. Country music superstar Sara Evans grew up on a farm outside of New Franklin and attended New Franklin schools. Her “Born to Fly” song is commemorated on the welcome sign in New Franklin.

Missouri River Valley Steam Engine Association I-70 East Exit 111

Karla and Russell Lang Hwy. 41 & Springs Road, Lamine

Mark and Linda Mellor 13355 Hwy. 5, south of Boonville

Dennis Ficken with the Missouri River Valley Steam Engine Association said the organization’s grounds were chosen for Boonslick’s first barn quilt block because of its easy-to-find location and visibility right off of Interstate 70.

Pattern was chosen because of the proximity to Santa Fe Trail, The Boonslick Trail, US Route 40 & 1-70. This region is truly an area of transportation to the west.

The Mellors chose the “Wedding Ring” pattern as a tribute to the late Pat Jackson because it was her favorite. “It just meant a little more because it was for her,” Mark said. “We actually had a wedding ring pattern quilt on our bed too, so there was some significance there for both of us.” Jackson was a member of the Boonslick Area Tourism Council Board.

Alice Gerke chose the “Star and Pin Wheel” pattern because she liked the colors and that it was a star. “I just thought it was pretty,” she said, noting that she likes having the block on the barn, which was built in 1919 by Barney Bonen. Gerke said she also enjoys seeing visitors stop to get pictures of her square.

Ann Marie Smith said she “looked and looked forever” before settling on the “Sarah’s Choice” pattern for its patriotic feel. “I had seen the barn quilts and thought they were really, really neat,” she said. “They give people an idea of the history of the area, and I love quilts.”

Bruce Viertel encouraged his mother, Doris, to put a block on their barn when they were approached by the Boonslick Area Tourism Council. “It does dress up the barn a little bit,” Viertel said. The barn, built in 1923, sits on the Viertel family’s century farm in Boonville. He said “Doris’ Choice” was an obvious pick for the pattern given his mother’s name.

Marjorie Loesing 21738 Hwy. 98, Boonville

James and Jackie Reuter 6048 Hwy. HH, Pilot Grove

Marjorie and her late husband, Clarence, got involved with the barn quilt project at the behest of their neighbor. She chose the 9 Patch pattern because the first quilt she ever made was a 9 patch, and she liked it.“It’s nice and simple, like me,” Marjorie said. She said she has enjoyed the attention the quilt block garners.

Amy Watring said she has enjoyed being part of the Barn Quilt Tour. They chose the Liberty Star pattern because it was her favorite of the ones they were given to pick from. “It’s really pretty when you come down the hill and see it,” Watring said. “We’ve had a lot of compliments on it.”

Jackie learned about the Barn Quilt Tour while attending a festival at Boone’s Lick State Park with her mother. “I was just enthralled with it. I think it’s a really neat thing,” Reuter said. She chose the “Harvest Star” pattern because she and her husband live on his family’s farm, and it felt like an appropriate choice.

James and Rosemary Schuster 14200 Hwy. HH, Pilot Grove

Russell and Karla Lang 8498 Springs Road, Blackwater, Lamine

Francis and Sammie Brengarth 16170 Hwy. V, Wooldridge

Rosemary chose “SunBonnet Sue” because she had always liked it – “it is a little bit different” from the others in that it doesn’t as obviously resemble a quilt pattern. She joined the project because she likes driving around to see the barns – and their blocks – herself. “I enjoy seeing them when you drive through the country,” she said. Block on the south side of the barn.

The farm is called The Prairie. The name was picked because their house was a Sears catalog design with the name “Prairie Style” in it.

The square on the Brengarths’ barn was a 50th wedding anniversary present from the couple’s children. Sammie said she chose the “North Star” pattern because she felt it matched the setting. She said she enjoys being a part of the Boonslick Barn Quilt Tour because of the attention it brings to the barn. “Everyone notices,” Sammie said.

Vernon and Joan Booker 14120 Hwy. F, Boonville

Ann says she liked quilts all her life and her grandmother was the inspiration behind her pattern choice. “I liked the colors, and I wanted a basket pattern because my grandmother had a quilt, and part of it was named basket.”

Joan was interested in the barn quilts because she was a quilter. “I have made a number of quilts, and the log cabin was one of my favorites,” Joan said. The Bookers also had a voice in the colors used for their barn quilt block. “We chose the coloring because we have blue roofs and tan sides on our house,” Joan said.

16. The Trails

John and Connie Hamilton 6026 Hwy. 135, Otterville

Virgil and Dolores Stegner 10999 Hwy. 135, Pilot Grove

Martha Jane Twenter 10997 Hwy. N, Pilot Grove

John said he and his wife thought the barn quilt project was “a great idea.” “It is something that brightens up the countryside and brings attention to the barns,” John said. The house and barn were built in the 1850s and they chose The Trails pattern because of their property’s history as a stop on the Butterfield State Coach Line.

With two other barn quilt blocks within three miles, Dolores said she was more than happy to add her barn to the tour. “I’m associated with the group that organizes it, and I’ve done a little bit of the tours — I look for them every time I drive around the country,” she said. She said she chose Overall Sam because the young fisherman is representative of her three sons.

Stained Glass was chosen because the owners are devout Christians.

The owners like the pattern and the colors.

MITCHELL CAR MUSEUM IN BOONVILLE. PHOTO/BOONVILLE TOURISM


Hannah Cole, depicted here as a statue in Boonville, came to the region with other Kentuckians in 1808. Hannah and William Cole built their cabin on the bluffs on the south side of the river, where Boonville is now located, and were ordered with the others to move to Loutre Island in 1810. Hannah moved back to the bluffs when her husband was killed in a battle with the Indians who had raided the Loutre River settlement. When the Indians became increasingly hostile during the War of 1812, the Cole families moved to the safety of the forts on the north side of the river. In 1814, they returned to the south shore and fortified Hannah’s cabin because of its excellent location on the river bluffs and its access to fresh water. It became known as Cole’s Fort, and other settlers soon came to build their homes in and around her fort. This area became Boonville, the county seat for Cooper County, when it was separated from Howard. The county was named after Col. Benjamin Cooper, who had led the Coles and other settlers to the Boone’s Lick area. -Warren Dalton and Deborah Thompson/COLUMBIA TRIBUNE, Aug. 17, 2014 Courtesy Photo

PILOT GROVE FOR MORE INFO VISIT: pilotgrovemo.org

P

ilot Grove dates back to about 1820, when settlers first made their homes south of Boonville. Other pioneers, headed farther west, took their bearings from the cluster of trees and gave it the name Pilot Grove. About 50 years later, workers laid the tracks for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad across the county, missing the town by about a mile. So the townsfolk packed up their village and moved it northeast to the grove and the railroad. History is also important in Pilot Grove, with tours of three lovely old homes available on a limited basis. Originally built in 1837, Crestmead was added to the National Register of

Historic Places in 1982. The home features a central hall staircase

still home to a herd of cattle directly descended from the Shorthorn herd established by Will Betteridge in 1888. Tours are $5 per person; call (660) 834-4140 for reservations.

CRESTMEAD

that spans three stories leading to the third floor observatory. Crestmead suffered a fire in 2008, but damaged areas were restored based on original plans and the house retains a number of original features, including the front doors and fireplaces in three of the rooms. There is also a slave house, ice house and buggy building. The home is

PLEASANT GREEN PLANTATION HOUSE

Built with handmade bricks in 1820, Pleasant Green Plantation House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The nine-room home was constructed on Old Georgetown Road, which

served as the main route from Boonville to the southwest, and at one point served as the local post office. The property also still has one of its five slave cabins still standing. Tours – given by guides in period dress – are $5 per person, with refreshments optional for tours of 12 or more. Call (660) 834-3945 for reservations. Burwood is an historic 1880s Victorian home featuring eight fireplaces and a slave cabin. Tours are $5 per person; call (660) 834-3406 to schedule a tour. The Cooper County Historical Society Research Center, at 111 Roe St., also attracts the attention of history and genealogy buffs.

BLACKWATER FOR MORE INFO VISIT: blackwatermissouri.weebly.com

B

lackwater is an unexpected gem nestled 3 miles off I-70. It was founded in 1887 after the Missouri Pacific Railroad needed a coal refilling station between Jefferson City and Kansas City. Blackwater is a place you would want to call home with some incredible historic homes and the notable West End Theatre which plays host to musical talents such as Bob Milne, and Randle Chowning, Founder of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils as well as outstanding theatrical performances. Each October Blackwater’s theatre troupe presents the spectacular Haunting Stroll through Wild Cliff Woods complete with many scenes of grave robbers, witches, trolls and chain gangs. You will be enticed to spend the night when you saunter into the Iron Horse Restaurant and Hotel’s parlor for an unexpected surprise from Chef Tracy Russell who was trained in Italy. After a relaxing night’s sleep in one of the ten renovated 1800’s style hotel rooms you will want to breathe in the fresh air of the Blackwater River as you wander down the Historic Commercial District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. In Blackwater’s unique shops you will find many wonderful treasures from custom designed hand crafted soaps, one of a kind gifts, exclusive antiques and collectibles as well as baked goods, primitive, home decor and other handmade products. You can’t leave town without getting your picture taken in Blackwater’s very own 1890’s jail. Stroll down the boardwalk to

42

the old town bank, now housing the telephone museum. And let your mind wander back to yesteryear when you step inside the reconditioned one-room schoolhouse. Or relax in any of our beautiful flower and water gardens. Blackwater also plays host to two outstanding festivals held the second Saturday in May and October. May Fest holds host to the annual tractor show and parade, children’s peddle pull and Fall Festival an exciting time with all new festivities and games pertaining to the season. Stay tuned in to other events such as the annual Progressive Dinner and the whole-hog barbecue benefiting the volunteer fire department as well as the Missouri Archives traveling exhibits by following us on Facebook or our web page blackwatermissouri.weebly.com.

ROCHEPORT FOR MORE INFO VISIT: rocheport-mo.org

W

hen you turn west onto Highway BB at the Rocheport Exit from I-70, you travel back in time to one of the quaintest towns in the Boonslick. Tiny Rocheport (French for “rock port”) has a historical presence. Lewis and Clark camped here. In 1892, the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad came to town and built the famous Rocheport Tunnel, through which you can still walk or bike as part of the scenic Katy Trail State Park. Rocheport is a travel destination where you will find antique stores, specialty shops,

art galleries, restaurants, and bed & breakfasts scattered across the picturesque town — perfect for a day trip or a weekend getaway! The entire village is on the National Register of Historic Places. Outdoor enthusiasts can rent canoes or kayaks for an excursion on the river or hit the Katy Trail on borrowed wheels from the Trailside Café and Bike Shop. Rocheport also has a thriving art scene, with seven galleries and artisans’ shops featuring everything from painting and sculpture to jewelry and

blacksmithing. The arts take center stage at several events throughout the year, including the Rocheport Wine Stroll Weekend each September, which gives visitors the opportunity to sample Missouri wines as they peruse local shops, learn about local artists’ work and enjoy live music at the Rocheport General Store. Need a place to stay? Rocheport is home to seven bed and breakfasts and inns, some just steps away from the trail. For more information, please visit www.rocheport-mo.org.

ABOUT THE COVER Bryan and Barbara Berlin are the owners of the Lindbergh Plane barn quilt. Tucked away on a farm in Saline County, Barbara said they chose this pattern because they had seen a quilt at a bed and breakfast in Rocheport made entirely of Lindbergh squares and they liked it. Thank you, Bryan and Barbara, for letting us feature your barn block on the cover of Barn Quilts of the Boonslick!
