This event is geared to celebrate the only local and National Historic District in Joplin.
Paula Callihan, Murphysburg Preservation Board Member, says, “We are excited to celebrate. Our passion is bringing people to our neighborhood and witnessing these beautiful homes. Getting them to see and appreciate the architecture, and the beauty and the beautiful neighborhood.”
