Nevada Things to Do
I went to jail in Nevada... The jail is now a museum and I went to see it. There is a great tour of the old jail. In the photo you can see me inside one of the cells. This jail was known as the worst jail in Missouri. After seeing inside of it I can understand why. Four men would share a room that measured less than two meters long by two meters...more
The Bushwhacker Museum is a very nice history center. I met some nice folks there in period costume and learned about the area's history. There were many interesting historical periods to learn about. The Osage Indians had lived in this area originally. Before the Civil War this area saw a lot of blood shed. During the Civil War the entire town was...more

Nevada Off The Beaten Path
I just returned from a more recent trip to Missouri. This time my truck did not break down. Took advantage of a good axle to go visit the Osage Indian Historic Village area. It is 7 miles east of Nevada on highway 54 then 9 miles north. It is far off the beaten path and part of the drive is on gravel roads. At the site there is an easy hiking...more
On highway 54 near the spot my truck broke down I saw a sign for the Osage Village State Historic Park. I was considering going there but my plans changed when the drive shaft fell out of the truck. This area was where the Native American Osage Indians had their largest village before white settlers decided they wanted to farm this fertile land....more
Fondest memory: MY FONDEST MEMORY WAS NOT HAVING TO GET MY TRUCK FIXED IN NEVADA. I will say that I think the mechanic service I used did treat me fairly. If you ever have car trouble in Nevada remember 'Automotive Innovations' mechanic service.
