Independence, Mo. --- Head west or linger longer?


Connections and intersections again, Independence, Mo., style.

You’ll need more than two days to be able to experience President Truman’s home and library, half a dozen fine restaurants, the faith explorations possible at the Community of Christ Temple and Latter Day Saints Visitor Center and the Second Empire Vaile Mansion.

Save an hour or two for sheer delight at the Puppetry Arts Institute in the Englewood neighborhood and Leila’s Hair Museum.

Really. Only one in the world Leila says.
