November to Remember Mystery Trip
The second day we spent time in Leavenworth.
Our first day was spent in St. Joseph, Missouri. Such a historical, interesting and unknown city. The above monument is of the Pony Express Riders which started in St. Jo on the route to Sacramento, CA. Visited the Pony Express Museum and also the Patee House
Visited the Jesse James home where he was killed.
Toured the Tobiason Studio and saw stained glass windows made and we each made a stained glass angel decoration. Here she is making lamp glass beads, but had none for sale-I would have bought at least one.
Fred Harvey, who started the Harvey Restaurants along the Santa Fe Railroad and hired Harvey Girl waitresses had a home in Leavenworth. We toured the home which is in the beginning stages of reconstruction which was interesting. Will be fun to see how it looks when it is finished. These Harvey Girls served our lunch.
This VA chapel is in the Guinness World Record Book because it is actually 2 churches. The top level is a Protestant Church and the Catholic Church is in the lower level. They are not connected from the inside. Both levels have beautiful stained glass windows.
