As I wrote in the previous posting, the docent who gave us a tour of the Robidoux apartments was eager to share with us her knowledge of St. Joseph. We learned a lot regarding the town from her. It was once the home of Quaker Oats, the cracker factory of Saltines (in the museum are chandeliers from the founder of that company, Frank L. Sommer). And do you remember Big Chief writing tablets? They were made here.
Another informative museum pertaining to the history of St.Joseph is the Remington Nature Center, where "history and nature collide". Here we learned more of the history of the town going back to the first Native Americans, as well as the fauna of the area. Outside of the center is river walk alongside the Mighty Mo.
That was our day in St.Joseph, a very full one and we still had not seen everything!
