Missouri, the “Show Me” state, welcomes Project Access as it is now a part of the

Southfork Manufactured Home Community in Kansas City, Missouri. Anyone who has visited the great state of Missouri knows it’s a place of beauty, history, and culture. Located in the heart of the American Midwest, what many people know of Missouri might derive from media and such shows as The Ozarks. However, there’s much more to Missouri than what is typically portrayed.

We’re so excited to have a Project Access community in Missouri, especially Kansas City. For those unfamiliar with the state, here are some fun highlights and little-known aspects of Missouri you can deposit in your knowledge bank.

St. Louis, Missouri, was once the starting point for western explorers and pioneers. Commemorating this historical fact is the impressive Gateway Arch. Rising 630-ft tall, it is the world’s tallest arch. And yes, you can go inside to the top!

According to VisitKC.com: Barbecue in Kansas City is more than a menu item or a method of preparation. It’s an institution, rich with history and culinary tradition that shapes the city’s dining landscape every day—and has since the early 1900s. For decades, visitors from across the globe have traveled here, drawn in by its smoky aroma, just to get a sample of KC’s acclaimed cuisine.

Per the website for the American Jazz Museum: Located in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District in Kansas City, MO, the museum showcases the sights and sounds of jazz through interactive exhibits and films, the Changing Gallery exhibit space, Horace M. Peterson III Visitors Center, The Blue Room, and Gem Theater. Since its inception in September 1997, the Museum hosts thousands of students, scholars, musicians, and fans of the arts for over 200 performances, education programs, special exhibitions, community events, and more each year, providing an opportunity to learn about the legends, honor their legacy, or simply enjoy the sounds of modern-day jazz.

Three notable Americans were born or raised in Missouri, and you can visit their quaint, historic hometowns. The Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum is in Independence, Missouri.

You can walk the streets and visit the family farm (and see the inspiration for Main Street U.S.A.) during a visit to Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri.

Suppose you seek the romance of a bygone era along the Mississippi River and enjoy the tales of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. In that case, you need to take in the sights of Mark Twain’s historic Hannibal, Missouri.

Missouri is a beautiful state with seven National Parks. We couldn’t be more excited to now be a part of its landscape and look forward to providing the residents of Southfork Manufactured Home Community with the quality services Project Access is known for.
