Pulaski County History Crawl

Old Stagecoach Stop

Last year I spent a week in Pulaski County, Missouri. On I-44 between St. Louis and Springfield, MO, the county had been more of a "drive through" than "stop and enjoy." After several visits, that has changed for me. I love the historical diversity - from Ft Leonard Wood and the Trail of Tears to Route 66. One can learn much about westward expansion by stopping in Waynesville and visiting two museums; the Pulaski County Museum and the Old Stagecoach Inn. Both are on the Waynesville Square.

See my first post about how transportation changed the area's fortunes time after time. https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=4011652436090282560#editor/target=post;postID=7635003712882864784;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=44;src=link

I found the area so full of history that I created a Pulaski County History Crawl that is scheduled for September 30 - Oct 2, 2016. I'm looking forward to seeing the experts from the area light the fire of discovery in the attendees. If you're interested in history, love to blog or post on Facebook, or share stories, we'd love to have you as part of our adventure!
