Dave & Kathy, 2013

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“.

  1. I really love your articles. I’m from Oregon and it’s good to see someone write about the history out here!

  2. For your Lost Landmarks collection, you should check out the Buckhorn Baths Motel in Mesa, AZ. It’s still there, but who knows for how long. The extensive taxidermy collection has already been donated to the university.

  3. ‘Demolished date’ typo for captions of several NYC train station photos: “New York City, NY – Train Gate, 1942 The original Pennyslvania Station in New York City was opened in 1910. By 1945, the station peaked with more than 100 million passengers traveling through each year. It was demolished in 1863, causing international outrage and galvanized the modern historic preservation movement. Photo by Marjory Collins, 1942.”
