Pulaski County USA- Experiences Required!

Experience Pulaski County’s 33 miles of Route 66! The legendary Main Street of America will lead you to:

• Ozark Mountain scenic wonders
• engineering marvels
• nostalgic roadhouses and diners
• chef-owned restaurants
• trophy trout streams & feisty smallmouth bass fishing
• countless acres of Mark Twain National Forest to explore
• canoeing and kayaking on the Big Piney & Gasconade rivers
• antique and boutique shopping
• museums and more!

Devils Elbow, long known for its rugged beauty and plentiful fishing, is an Instagram worthy destination. Don’t miss the Sugar Bowl bluff, Shelden’s Market & Post Office, the world-famous Elbow Inn, and the 1923 steel two-span through truss bridge. Nearby Hooker Cut was once the deepest cut ever made for road construction.

Devils Elbow Not all who wander are lost

1923 Route 66 Bridge, Devils Elbow

Saint Robert, established in 1951, celebrates its roots as the gateway to Fort Leonard Wood with several military monuments and memorials placed through-out the town. The City commissioned mural painter Bubba Sorenson to create a stunning, patriotic Freedom Rock on St. Robert Boulevard in 2017. Grab a take-out lunch from the retro 1950’s Route 66 Diner and picnic at George M. Reed Roadside Park. The park is one of only two remaining roadside parks on Route 66 in Missouri. It is also the future home of the Route 66 Neon Park. Looking for lodging? From branded nationwide hotels to mom and pop Route 66 motels to Airbnb rentals, Saint Robert has you and your family covered!

Saint Robert, Missouri

The quirky and whimsical Frog Rock cheerfully greets you as you descend into Waynesville, the county seat. The charming town square hosts two museums- Old Stagecoach Stop and Route 66 Courthouse Museum. The Henry H. Hohenschild designed courthouse served Pulaski County citizens from 1903 until 1989. Both museums are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are open to the public (limited hours) April through September. Photographers and artists will be drawn to many buildings that line Route 66 in town. History buffs and nature lovers will want to tour Laughlin Park’s Trail of Tears Memorial and Roubidoux Spring. Driving an RV? Stay at the city’s Roubidoux Spring Campground & RV Park. Dining, shopping, and trophy trout fishing are all within walking distance of the campground!

Route 66 isn’t the only timeless path through Pulaski County. Highway 133, designated in the 1930’s follows a military trail that was blazed during the Civil War. During 1869 the Southwest Pacific Railroad (later the Frisco Railroad) laid tracks along this route and Dixon, Crocker, and Richland were born. Today, these former boom towns are home to unique eats, historic architecture, Midwestern charm, and fun festivals.

Some people say that Pulaski County is always celebrating something. They’re right! Families love Old Settlers Day (July), Railroad Days (August), Cow Days (September), and county fairs in both Saint Robert and Richland in June. Numerous other festivals, events, performances, rodeos, and tournaments attract visitors from across the United States to Pulaski County each year.

Ozark Quilt Trail Launched in Pulaski County

508 x 265 with logo

Ozark Quilt Trail launched in Pulaski County June 3, 2016. It is Missouri’s second organized quilt block trail.

Friday, June 3rd, 2016 was an exciting day for the Ozark Quilt Trail project in Pulaski County, Missouri! After two years of research, studying best practices from established quilt trails across the United States, and a lengthy 501 (c) (3) process, the group of eight dedicated volunteers unveiled their first three quilt block installations at the 1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum (Waynesville), Old Stagecoach Stop Museum (Waynesville), and the Frisco Depot Museum (Crocker). Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony in conjunction with the first unveiling.

1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum w Logo

1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum on the Square, in Waynesville, is host to “Four Flags” quilt block. The museum is on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public every Saturday, April through September. Admission is free.

The 1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum’s quilt block pattern is named Four Flags and was chosen to highlight Pulaski County’s patriotism. The Old Stagecoach Stop Museum & Foundation chose the Missouri Star pattern to represent their historical site. This pattern can be considered as a Civil War era pattern- an appropriate fit since the Old Stagecoach Stop was commandeered by Union forces and used as hospital during the War Between The States. The pattern chosen for the Frisco Depot Museum in Crocker celebrates Crocker’s roots as a railroad boom town- and is a tip of the hat to the conductors on the Underground Railroad who risked everything to lead slaves to freedom.

Old Stagecoach Stop w Logo

The Old Stagecoach Stop Museum displays the “Missouri Star” quilt block. The museum is on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public every Saturday, April through September. Admission is free.

Ozark Quilt Trail consists of Kathi Crawford (President), Denise Seevers (Vice-President), Bonnie Kinkel (Secretary), Liz Duplissie (Treasurer), Alex Fry, Mayor James Morgan, Robin Carpenter, and Laura Huffman. The group will continue installing quilt blocks across Pulaski County and surrounding areas at historic sites, points of interest, and barns.

Quilt Trails are popular in other states and Ozark Quilt Trail is the second established quilt block trail in Missouri. Ozark Quilt Trail members reached out to the first, Barn Quilts of the Boonslick, for advice and best practices. Ozark Quilt Trail will “preserve, present and promote our rural communities roots; honor our farming and family traditions; promote agri-tourism in our county, and bring focus and pride to our downtowns, and public areas. We will educate citizens and visitors on our Ozark Mountain heritage, historic sites, and landmarks.”

Frisco Depot Museum w Logo

The Frisco Depot Museum in Crocker, MO. is home to the “Underground Railroad” quilt block. The Frisco Depot Museum is open by appointment and during Crocker’s annual Railroad Days festival.

The groups focus will first be turned towards historic sites, points of interest, and barns on primary routes throughout the county such as Route 66, Highway 28, Highway 17, and Highway 7. Later, focus will shift to secondary routes such as T Highway, DD Highway, and O Highway, before turning to dirt road thoroughfares within the Pulaski County area.

Ozark Quilt Trail members wish to extend a sincere Thank You and round of applause to Gone To Pieces Quilt Guild who contributed the funds to cover the expenses of the quilt block installation at the Old Stagecoach Stop. If you or your organization would like to host an installation, or nominate a site, please contact Kathi Crawford at 573-433-5645. You can also learn more at the group’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ozarkquilttrail.
