LEGO Faurot Field
We made a pit stop in Kingdom City on Saturday, which is an excellent place for a pit stop when you are crossing Missouri. It's the junction between Interstate 70 and Highway 54, home of Ozarkland and former home of the Nostalgiaville USA retail store (they still have an online store), as well as the Heart of Missouri Tourism Center. At the Tourism Center we discovered this LEGO Faurot Field, which is Mizzou's (Missouri University at Columbia) stadium. There's also a LEGO arena next to it, but it's very difficult to photograph with the dome on top.
The Heart of Missouri Tourism Center is operated by the Calloway County Tourism Board and you'll find it at exit 148 off Interstate 70. Stop in and check out the LEGO stadium, the antique Mobilette car, and the Missouri Firefighter's Memorial (more on this in a future blog)!
