Dave & Kathy Alexander.

Legends of America is comprised of just the two of us — Dave & Kathy, who have a love of history, travel, and a desire to share it with the world! We have several others who have contributed along the way and always welcome more.

Though we are a small Mom & Pop “shop”, we have decades of customer service & business experience between the two us — in both large and small organizations. With an entrepreneurial dream, we launched Legends of America in 2003.

We are Midwest born and bred with great values. You’ll find, with just an email, phone call, or order, that our customer service is Over the Top!!

Legends’ General Store and our Photo Print Shop are the primary means for providing the volumes of information to our readers at no cost. However, you can also show your support through our “Tip Jar“.
