One of the reasons why I started this blog was to archive and share history. It even has its own category of posts. It's a repository of stuff I stumble on or things I find interesting. Did you know there's an actual group of folks who take historical documentation very seriously?
The Native Sons and Daughters of Greater Kansas City is a group with a ton more dedication than I have to preserving our area's history.
They have installed and are dedicating three new historical markers tomorrow (Saturday 4/7/18) at 11AM at the YMCA Challenger Park (click here for directions) and you're all invited.
This group has mapped all of their historical markers for you to learn about our past.
It's going to be cold tomorrow but bundle up and come learn more about the pioneer past. Do a little homework before you come and read up about the Barry Road Flea Market before you come. Also, I forgot to wish the old town of Barry a happy 189th Birthday last March.
