Joplin is the largest city in Jasper County in the US state of Missouri. The city became immensely famous after the Civil War due to two key events- the discovery of lead and zinc in Joplin Valley sometime before 1861 AD, and the connectivity of railroads to further commercial advantage. Three souvenirs of those glorious times- some 19th century houses, pit mines and mineshafts- are still visible today. Other stellar attractions here are the state’s highest continuously flowing waterfall called the Grand Falls and two museums (the Everett J. Ritchie Tri-State Mineral Museum and Dorothea B. Hoover Historical Museum) that are home to an exhaustive range of artifacts since 19th century.
Joplin Museum Complex
A proud derivative of Joplin’s glorious mining history, the Joplin Museum Complex is divided mainly into two parts: the Everett J. Ritchie Tri-State Mineral Museum and the Dorothea B. Hoover Historical Museum. The former is home to several lead and zinc artifacts dating back to 19th century while the latter consists of Victorian furnishings, a circus room, a 1927 fire engine and a doll collection.
