POSTED: 09/23/2016
Visit areas in northeastern Missouri recognized for their unique character and influence on American culture during a day trip being offered in mid-October by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

Way of the American Genius is the name of this trip, which will take participants to heritage cities along Missouri Highway 36 including Cameron, Hamilton, and Chillicothe. Travelers will see the home of sliced bread, visit the J.C. Penney Museum, and tour the Missouri Star Quilt Company. The group will enjoy lunch at Blue Sage Restaurant in Hamilton, and then make a stop at Country Cabin Village east of Cameron for shopping and homemade cinnamon rolls.
