Actually the home of the Pony Express is St. Joseph, Disney was born at Lamar and Joan Crawford in Texas.

If Crawford was proud of living and going to school in Missouri, I never heard of it.

I remember as a small child, mother getting mad at dad for taking the "short" way through colored town. I also remember seeing the big stately homes along Paseo Blvd being trashed out. My oldest sibling graduated from Paseo Highschool and it was long after that they tore the old one down and built a new one. Not too many years past that they had to repeat the process.

I left in 78 and you couldn't pay me enough to go back and live there.

Well, the Alexander Majors Home, 81st and State Line, Kansas City, was a co-founder of Pony Express, and it was there that ponies grazed being readied for riders, who picked them up there.

I am and Interior Designer, who researched the history of Alexander Majors, as I was chosen to do the main room in his home during the Designer's Showhouse in the '80s. Rides were also run out from St. Joseph but many, began exactly in the home and business of Alexander Majors.
