10 Scary Places in Missouri

Missouri has a number of scary places that may be worth visiting.  Many of them may not be as famous as others, it is nice that you can visit local ones.  Happy Hunting!

Boulevard Brewery

Boulevard Brewery is a Kansas City local craft beer company.  Kansas City takes pride in its bbq, sports and beer.  They offer free tours of the brewery, just get there at least 20 minutes early.  They have a paid tour that cost $20 and is more in depth.  The tours are very good.  They even have a small bar there that serves souly Boulivard Beers on tap.  You get two free samples of their beer.  So chose wisely.

Declining Number of History Majors!?

According to NPR the number of history majors are on the decline.  In some schools as much as 30% .  If the information is accurate fewer people teaching and fewer qualified people writing/researching.  Now the current market tends to show an increase interest in engineering and computer science.  Those are many of the jobs tend to be at the moment.  While yes there is a demand for tech jobs but eventually many of those fields will probably be tought in public school.  Which means it will be harder to set your self apart if everyone had the same level of training. 

Not many people can analyze data track trends.  Eventually, with the decline in people majoring in a certain field will create demand.  Much like the nursing field.  Many schools limiting the number of students admitted into nursing programs thus creating hire rates in pay to attract nurses especially ones with experience and qualifications.

If I could do it again, I would still major in history.  People tend to forget all the good things that come with earning a history degree and most people are not willing to put in the work.  The other down side is people seem to want things like jobs and money to come easy.  

Museum: Strawberry Hill Museum

Ghostly World™

Strawberry Hill Museum in Kansas City, MissouriLocation: Kansas City, Missouri, USA
Built: Unknown
Operation Time: ? – ?
Type: Museum
Status: Open


Built as a mansion and later used as an orphanage, the Strawberry Hill Museum is now haunted by the spirits of the man and woman that originally lived in the house. The woman has appeared on two occasions: once walking down a church aisle (witnessed by two nuns at the alter) and the other time outside one of the museum’s windows when she asked where the priest’s house was.

The man has been seen only once, when a person visiting the museum’s third floor. Inside the closet was a man sitting, waving his hands in front of his face as if saying “Noooo!”.

As she ran down the stairs screaming, the man tapped her shoulder the entire way. She later identified him as a man in an old photograph from the museum.
