Make a St Joseph, MO bed and breakfast your vacation getaway in the northwest region of Missouri. Saint Joseph is about 55 miles north of Kansas City and is famous for being the place where the Pony Express began and Jesse James met his demise. Until after the Civil War, it was the westernmost point accessible by rail.
With numerous museums and preserved structures, over 50 of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, St. Joseph is rich with history. Some of the Museums include the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art, the Glore Psychiatric Museum, the Jesse James Home Museum, and the Pony Express National Museum.
The Pony Express began here in 1860, and the Museum illustrates its need, creation, operation, and termination. An impressive bronze statue of a Pony Express rider was dedicated in 1940 commemorating the pioneer spirit.
A visit to Hyde Park Recreation Complex with its pool, walking trail, basketball court, and picnic area is a great family outing. Or, you can take a short drive to Lewis and Clark State Park for a picnic overlooking the lake.
So, consider making a reservation with a member of the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Missouri in St. Joseph for a pleasant lodging alternative to a typical hotel.
