Larry Baggett's Trail of Tears

N Outer Rd (Hwy. D), I-44, exit 172, Jerome, MO

East < GO > West

Larry Baggett created this monument to the Cherokee Trail of Tears that goes across his property. This is an example of dementia concretia and very interesting to see. He passed away in 2003 and the property was sold in 2005. As of 2017 the property was being restored with a possible opening in spring 2018.

To get to the property take I-44, exit 172 to the north side which is Hwy. D then go east.

x The gate was closed when we were there in 2016 so we only saw a few things close to the road.

x This looks like a neat place to sit and rest a spell while contemplating all there is to see here.

x Here's a little closer look at the Trail of Tears sign.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
