Visit Missouri: Kimswick’s Blue Owl

kimswickKimmswick, Missouri officially has 92 residents. Most days you will find far more people in this little town. When Mrs. Ross, heir to the 7-Up company, revisited the town where she had grown up, she was disappointed to see that it was run down and most businesses had closed. She steadily bought and improved properties and helped new businesses to open. Today Kimmswick is a draw for visitors from states away. One of the highlights is the Blue Owl, a restaurant that serves “Levy High Apple Pie.” Believe me, the pie literally is eight inches tall! You’ll get more apples in a slice of their pie than anywhere else in the country.
