It was also noted that this picture shows Mary’s Cafe on the north side of Broadway. Bob Campbell stated that it was his wife’s paternal grandparents, Baxter and Mary Love, who owned it!

The Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives posted about rejoining the mirror and mantel from the Morse Mansion that will be on display when the Museum opens from their Winter Break. The Morse Mansion was located where the Job Corps campus sits now. Great job to Darryl Couts, Earl Humphreys, and Mark Spohn, who all worked to rejoin the pieces together again!
