Fulton is a town of roughly 13,000 people, located about 20 miles east of Columbia. Some residents say that Fulton has an independent character, due in part to the presence of Westminister College and William Woods University. The town is also home to the Fulton State Hospital, and the Missouri School for the Deaf, which is the first of its kind west of the Mississippi. But Fulton is perhaps most famous for being the location Winston Churchill delivered his famous Iron Curtain speech, on the Westminister College Campus.
To get a better sense of what it’s like living in Fulton, KBIA’s Rehman Tungekar sat in with a group of longtime residents during one of their morning meetings at Finally Tammy’s Restaurant.
