Bell Hotel: Historic Route 66

#PulaskiCountyUSA has been a travel destination for families for generations. This vintage postcard depicts Bell Hotel, on the banks of the Roubidoux River, in Waynesville. The hotel was constructed around a one room cabin and parts of that structure are still visible inside the building today. The hotel began meeting the needs of auto tourists from the very beginning of Route 66. presently, the building is operated as Waynesville Memorial Chapel.

History Made As Pulaski County Designated First “Purple Heart County” in Missouri

Video

Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Department of Missouri, Everett Kelly made his third trip to Pulaski County in as many months on March 25, 2013 to present Pulaski County Commissioners with a plaque and flag recognizing the county as a Purple Heart County. Pulaski County is the first county in Missouri to receive this designation, joining in the states effort to honor those veterans who have been wounded or killed while in military service to our country. The declaration follows legislative action which made Missouri’s entire sections of Interstate 44 and 70 a Purple Heart Trail.

A Purple Heart County is a community with “great admiration and gratitude for the men and women who have served this country.”

Commander Kelly, a two-time Purple Heart recipient, along with other Purple Heart recipients, a color guard, and Presiding Pulaski County Commissioner Gene Newkirk raised the County’s Purple Heart flag above the courthouse.

Commander Kelly had previously journeyed to Pulaski County to designate the City of St. Robert and the City of Waynesville as Purple Heart Cities. St. Robert received its designation January 7, 2013, and sister city Waynesville, received its designation March 21, 2013.

The Purple Heart Trail was established in 1992 by the Military Order of the Purple Heart to be a symbolic trail throughout all 50 states to commemorate and honor all men and women who have been wounded or killed in combat while serving in the U.S. armed forces. The Purple Heart Trail originates in Mount Vernon, Va., and traverses the United States to California.

The designation of both St. Robert and Waynesville as Purple Heart Cities, in addition to Pulaski County being recognized as a Purple Heart County, is another indicator of the prevalent patriotism that runs deep in Pulaski County USA.

Waynesville Designated As “Purple Heart City”

The City of Waynesville joined sister city, Saint Robert, as a Purple Heart City on March 21, 2013. Waynesville is now part of the Purple Heart Trail along Interstate 44. The City of Saint Robert became the first city on the Interstate 44 corridor to become a Purple Heart City on the Purple Heart Trail January 7, 2013.  Waynesville is the fifth city in Missouri to receive the Purple Heart City designation, joining in the states effort to honor those veterans who have been wounded or killed while in military service to our country. The declaration follows legislative action which made Missouri’s entire sections of Interstate 44 and 70 a Purple Heart Trail.

A Purple Heart City is a community with “great admiration and gratitude for the men and women who have served this country.”

Commander Everett Kelley, of Buffalo, and long-time Waynesville resident, SGM (Retired) Edgar Irizarry presented a flag and plaque to the City making that designation. Mayor Luge Hardman stated that the City is “honored to be included in this designation, as we honor the service of our valiant military.”  The City of Waynesville will proudly fly the Purple Heart flag on special days.

Ret SGM Edgar Izizarry and Commander Everett Kelley present the Purple Heart City flag to Waynesville Mayor, Luge Hardman. The flag will proudly be flown on special days.
