KBIA visits Clark, Missouri

Just about the only business still thriving in Clark, the feed store also serves as de facto “hang out” for Clark residents to visit with their friends and catch up on the latest gossip.
Darren Hellwege KBIA

KBIA's Darren Hellwege visits one of the smallest towns that will be part of the 40/40 project, Clark, Missouri. There may not be as much excitement as you'd find in a big city, but there are friendly people. One of them, Johnny Collie, sits on his front porch with Darren and talks about growing up in Clark and why he's still glad to call it "home".

KBIA visits Lohman

Small towns, people say, are school and church communities.  Well, drive just 15 minutes into the countryside around Jefferson City and you'll find Lohman, a town too small to have its own school.  As a matter of culture, or default, public life revolves around the local Lutheran church in Lohman.  KBIA's Scott Pham visited that church and found a town with a strong sense of history in the face of major changes to its way of life.

KBIA visits Fulton

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.

KBIA visits Linn

Abby Klamann

When the city of Linn, Missouri celebrated its centennial anniversary last year, all eyes were on the past. The city honored its most historical locations, from the Mayor’s House—the city’s oldest continuous home—to the Thriftway Grocery Store, originally established 50 years ago. But for lifelong Linn residents like Roberta Schwinke and Mary Lou Schulte, preserving the city’s stories and treasures is a year-round effort.
