From our 2017 Gulf Coast Adventure – Staying a few days in Lake Charles, LA, we learned that the city has the 2nd largest Mardi Gras celebration in the United States. So we paid a visit to the Mardi Gras Museum of Imperial Calcasieu and talked to Docent and Curator David Faulk.

Lots of folks think Legends of America is a big corporation with dozens of employees — because we’ve been around so long & provide thousands of web pages — Nope, we’re not.

Legends is actually comprised of just two of us — Dave & Kathy, who have a love of history, travel, and a desire to share it with the world!

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!!

The Legends General Store and our Photo Shop are the means for providing the volumes of information to our readers at no cost.

  1. Dear Dave & Kathy, I enjoy your site so much and eagerly look for each issue. I really enjoyed your article on “The Medicine Wheel”. I have been to the wheel but it has been more 20 years ago. The picture you posted prompted a question, has there been restoration to this site? It seems to me there are more stones in the spokes than I remember. Thanks for the time, keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks for the kind words Ed, and thanks for being a newsletter subscriber! I believe there has been some restoration to the Big Horn Medicine Wheel, but don’t have the facts in front of us so can’t say for sure.
