Freeman Advantage members tour Joplin historic sites


Freeman Advantage members got a chance to tour some of Joplin's most historic sites on Wednesday.

Some of those sites included the former Fox Theater, Christman Building, Frisco Building, Scottish Rite Building and Mount Hope Cemetery.

Freeman Advantage is offered to those 50 and older providing fellowship, education and travel opportunities.

"This tour, I worked with a local historian, Brad Belks, to set up the stops for today," says Senior and Volunteer Services Coordinator Jamie Gillmore.  "I just picked places that would have some interesting history for our group."

It's $20 to sign up for Freeman Advantage.  For more information call 417-347-5837.
