 Greetings From Missouri Postcard

Greetings From Missouri, custom postcard by Legends of America,

available HERE!



Missouri is rich in history and culture. American Indian warriors, such as the Osage and Missouri, and famous pioneers, such as Lewis and Clark, were drawn to the vast waterways of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and the abundant land and wildlife.


In the first half of the 1800s, Missouri's history was rich with the Santa Fe, Oregon and California Trails threading through Kansas City and Independence. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Missouri saw many struggles as it moved from a pro-slavery state to a Union State, experiencing armed conflict and guerrilla-raids. 


Bridal Cave in MissouriMissouri offers stunning scenery in its rolling hills, winding rivers, and limestone bluffs. Explore Missouri's many underground caves, enjoy white water rapids, fish in its numerous streams and lakes, and visit its many small towns that abound with charm and friendly people.


This is a just a little of what the state has to offer. Enjoy your travels in Missouri and welcome to the Legends of the Show Me State.

Missouri Fall Foliage

Beautiful Fall Foliage along Highway MO19 near

Hermann, Missouri.  October, 2004, Kathy Weiser. 



Missouri Flag - Centered on red, white and blue fields is the Missouri state seal. It is encircled by a blue band with twenty-four stars representing the number of states in 1821. The stars in the inner circle have the same meaning. Two huge grizzly bears support the circular shield in the center which has three parts:

  1. The motto "United We Stand, Divided we Fall"

  2. The right section representing the United States

  3. The left section containing a moon representing a new state and a grizzly bear standing for courage.
