Facility:Excelsior Springs Museum and Archives
Description:Archives of the city's claim to fame with its curative spring waters, local swimming pool, and Elm's Hotel. The city has many famous people associated with it: Harry Truman, Truman Capote and Esther Williams to name a few. In 1969, 'Adam at Six' was filmed here with Michael Douglas in the lead and many local residents playing bit parts. The script was written by Elinor Karpf, daughter of a local dentist and her husband Stephen Karpf. The building first served as a bank established May 9, 1894. Much of the downtown area still has the original buildings as well. The museum houses great historical content on the military, along with many photos of early residents and historical artifacts. This is a great place to learn of this town's history and how a small Missouri town gained its claim to fame and was once the talk of Hollywood.
