Traveling through History since 2003

Dave and Kathy AlexanderWho We Are

Like so many other small businesses, Legends of America started out as a hobby. Owner-Editor, Kathy Weiser-Alexander has a deep seated love for history, travel, writing, and almost anything falling within a creative realm. With this in mind, she started a small personal webpage called High Country Legends in 2002. Quickly, the ideas and opportunities expanded and soon, a small business she started in 1998 called the Rocky Mountain General Store was merged with the new website. This business, which was also more of a hobby, was the sales outlet for her creative endeavors.

Kathy's qualifications include a degree in Business Administration; years of drawing, painting, and other artsy-craftsy stuff; and, when creativity didn't pay the bills --  more than 20 years of hands-on corporate experience, encompassing business and people management, customer service, technology, and consulting.

 

In 2003 Kathy met David Alexander in Kansas City, though both are native Texans. That same year the hobby website evolved into Legends of America and it was the start of a new career. From the beginning, Dave contributed advice, his technical knowledge, and became a primary travel partner. Dave was involved in the radio broadcasting industry from his mid teens. In 1999, Dave left the airwaves to join a company that designed, managed, and supported software for radio stations, which was eventually purchased by Google in 2006. His division was sold off in the fall of 2009, at which time, he joined Legends of America full time.

 

Kathy is a published author, with her first book, Great American Bars and Saloons, published in 2006, followed by major contributions to Greetings from Route 66  in 2010 along with several other noted Route 66 authors. Her work is also published under the "Legends Of America" name with Old West Lawmen (2012), Lynching's, Hanging's & Vigilante Groups (2014), and Frontier Slang, Lingo & Phrases (2015).  Also in 2014, Kathy was featured in the cable network Investigation Discovery (ID) channel's "Evil Kin", episode 202 about the Bloody Benders, and both Kathy and Dave took part in Ghost Towns: America's Lost World, a 5+ hour, 2 disc DVD released by Mill Creek Entertainment in April of the same year. In 2015, Kathy appeared on the American Heroes Channel in two episodes of the show "Gunslingers" discussing Bat Masterson, original air date August 2, 2015, and Bill Doolin, original air date August 16, 2015. In 2016, Kathy appeared in the new AHC Series "American Lawmen" in season 1 episode "Dallas Stoudenmire: The Hero of El Paso", original air date March 16, 2016. She also took part in an interview for an upcoming Episode of the Travel Channel's series Mysteries at the National Parks, air date to be announced.

 

Though we started Legends in the Kansas City area -- Dave -- in Prairie Village, Kansas and Kathy in Lenexa, Kansas,  the business officially moved to Warsaw, Missouri in May, 2010. Warsaw, which sits on the dam splitting Truman Lake and the Lake of the Ozarks, is a small town with about 2,000 full-time folks. That number; however, doubles as people flock to enjoy the lakes in the summer.

 

Now, Kathy is in charge of the writing, photography, and website design, while Dave handles all technical aspects, shipping, marketing, & sales. What was once the Rocky Mountain General Store has become Legends General Store and an additional sales outlet was also incorporated -- Legends Photo Shop which features not only the many photos taking during Legends' travels, but also a large volume of restored vintage images.

 

Legends of America is a small Midwest company with strong moral and ethical business values. We take pride in our work and strive to provide our readers, advertisers, and customers with a continually updated site, great products, and superior customer service. If you ever have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.
