Agreed! Awesome work!

How did you find the newspaper articles? Online?

Yes. I googled silver dollar city outpost leasburg,mo or some such and found several hits from newspapers.com, but you had to have a paid subscription to actually view the articles. You could however see what paper and what the date was in the preview, so from there I googled that paper and those dates and got a hit from the Missouri state historical society site that has scans of those newspapers for free.

I think my parents have some old 1970's park brochures that have the picture of it on them. Finding them though would be difficult. They keep everything. I remember stopping there before. From what I remember it was pretty much just a gas station with a little craft demo area. Lots of Branson literature designed to point you to SDC. Nothing spectacular.

The brochure I have that is linked to in post #2 has a sketch of it, but I would love to see a real picture, something better that the blurry black and white from the newspaper article.

Really good sleuthing, thelarsonsix!

I might have to throw together something on this for the front page on throwback Thursday.

Thank you. Please do, I think that is a great idea. I had no idea The Outpost existed until I acquired the old brochure that mentioned it.

We took a road trip to Onondaga cave today for my birthday. I can confirm the earlier pictures are of the correct corner. I had my mom and dad with me (they stopped there several times when it was open) ...plus a lady at the cave gift shop used to work there.
From what I can tell, the only remnants are what is left of the huge sign that you could once see from 44. I will post some pictures I took.

It seems easiest if you place them elsewhere on the net and link their urls to your posts here.

Awesome. Thanks for that, I thought I had the right spot but wasn't positive.
