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.

Abby Klamann

When the city of Linn, Missouri celebrated its centennial anniversary last year, all eyes were on the past.

But for lifelong Linn residents like Roberta Schwinke and Mary Lou Schulte, preserving the city’s stories and treasures is a year-round effort.

Nobody knows the history, and tells its stories better than Bob Priddy, whose "Across Our Wide Missouri" series of books are full of the narrative of our state's past.
