Last month, APTCP members and guests had the opportunity to tour the newly reopened historic Phenix Marble Company near Springfield, a Missouri company that boomed between 1884 to the Great Depression. Operated by Mastin Simpson and W.C. Scarritt from Kansas City, Phenix Marble Company became famous for their signature stone, Napoleon Gray. Buildings all across America were clad with this native Missouri stone, including the New York Stock Exchange and the Palace of the Legion in San Francisco.
This summer we held our annual meeting in Omaha were attendees had the opportunity to tour the Omaha's Farmer's Market, Burlington Station's renovation, and the Rail and Commerce Building. Thank you to all the tour guides, attendees and board members that were table to make itout to this great event!
