Wandering Iris Tuesday Pik – Red Oak II, Missouri

Red Oak II is along an old stretch of Rt 66 about 20 miles east of Joplin Missouri.  It is also about 20 miles west of the original Red Oak.  Most of the buildings were moved by the Missouri artist Lowell Davis.  Red Oak was his childhood home.  He lovingly restored the homes and businesses and placed them to look like a small town.

When you drive through this town you can imagine that it is 1930.  He also added some funny pieces to his town like a child care center that is a large cage.
