This month’s issue of the Joplin Metro Magazine has a number of Joplin history related articles. First is a profile of Hannah Simpson, who is selling postcards printed with images of familiar iconic and historic signs of Joplin to benefit the Trees for Joplin Fund. Next in the issue is the cover story, photographs of a number of Joplin landmarks relating to nearly every decade of Joplin’s history with brief histories. The topics range from the Inn at Reddings Mill to Junge Field, as well as such familiar buildings as the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Lastly, the issue wraps up its Joplin-centric history with a piece on the Mo-Kan Dragway.
