The Historic Joplin Preservation Commission is looking to bring some context to a couple of famous landmarks.
The commission is placing four storyboards around the city that give details to the area’s historical relevance. The storyboards will be placed at McIndoe Park, Landreth Park, on the Reverend Harris G. Joplin property and the former site of the Lincoln School District. And the commission hopes that these storyboards will help provide the public with information on what makes Joplin unique.
“Well they are an asset to our community, especially to our identity and acknowledging our history,” says Thomas Walters, City Planner.
Some of the storyboards were done in partnership with sign designs in Joplin. This project is just the beginning of historical landmark recognition the commission plans on doing around town.
