On May 21st, our club took another “day trip”. This time we headed to Fulton Missouri to tour the Auto World Museum and the National Churchill Museum. Mother nature made up for some of our poor weather days that we have had lately with lots of blue sky and very comfortable temps.

In about an hour and a half after leaving Lake St. Louis, we arrived at the Auto World Museum. Also known as Backer Auto World, the museum houses a wide variety of automobiles with its nearly 80 vehicles from the Backer Family’s larger collection. Not only were the cars interesting, the settings and murals were so authentic for the eras.

From there we headed to the Brick District that featured many shops to do some browsing in. Then it was off to lunch at the Post Office Bar & Grill that was located, strangely enough, in the old Fulton Post Office. There, we do what we do best, eat. Our next stop was Westminster College to tour the National Churchill Museum. You could spend a whole day there if you wanted to see all that was available. It covered the history of Winston Churchill from his childhood through two world wars.

We also viewed the Christopher Wren-designed Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury. Dating back to the 17th Century, the Church was painstakingly moved, brick by brick, from London to Fulton to the Westminster College campus. The Church now stands exactly as Wren’s design envisaged in 1677. We finished with the day viewing a portion of the Berlin Wall.

Special thanks go out to Debbie Peluso and Syl Biermann for setting up this great day and to Renee Graham from the Fulton Convention and Visitors Bureau for her help and to Jim Biermann who successfully guided our caravan.
