We went to the Steamboat Arabia museum in Kansas City. A father, two sons and a friend began a search for the steamboat in a field near the Missouri river. This museum details the hunt for the boat, what all they found and how they preserved it. They are still cleaning things up. You can talk to the folks about what they are working on.
The china was beautiful!
We stopped at a Civil War battlefield in Carthage, MO. The battle took place July 1861
This is the lodge near the top. I would love to stay here and spent a few hours looking at the beautiful view.
