Owens–Thomas House

The Owens–Thomas House & Slave Quarters is a historic home in Savannah, operated as a historic house museum by Telfair Museums. It is located on the northeast corner of Oglethorpe Square; the Owens–Thomas House was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976, as one of the nation's finest examples of English Regency architecture. Renovations in the 1990s uncovered and restored one of the oldest and best preserved urban slave quarters in the American South; this most important and architecturally significant house was begun in 1816 and completed in 1819. Designed by the English architect William Jay of Bath, the house plans were drawn while Jay was still in England, he sent architectural elevations to local workers before his arrival in Savannah sometime after foundations were laid. According to Jay's letters, the house was to be aesthetically compatible to England; this is evident in the Bath stone of the house's construction as well as its sophisticated architectural detail. It was a gentrifying physical ornament to the newly successful Southern port.

The Richardson House, as it was known after its first owner and builder, is North America's preeminent example of period English Regency architecture. The mansion was purchased in 1830 by local attorney and politician George Welshman Owens for $10,000; the family maintained it for several decades until Owens' granddaughter, Margaret Thomas, bequeathed the house to the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences as the South's oldest art museum, in 1951. The house is notable for its early cast iron side veranda with elaborate acanthus scroll supports on which the Marquis de Lafayette addressed the citizens of Savannah on his visit in 1825. William Jay was architect to other Savannah landmarks such as the Scarborough house, the Telfair House as mentioned above, an attribution to the Gordon-Low House. A focus of tours of the site is the carriage house and the history of the enslaved workers who lived there, including the nanny and butler. During a renovation of the carriage house in the 1990's, the owners of the site discovered one of the oldest and best preserved urban slave quarters in the American South.

The history has been uncovered via their Slavery and Freedom Project, via symposiums in 2008 and 2020. The ceiling of the slave quarters is painted haint blue, customarily used in Gullah culture to deter ghosts or other malevolent spirits, it is notable as the largest swath of haint blue paint in North America. The restoration includes the pantry and other elements of the Gullah cooking, the cellar where meals and laundry were prepared; the Owens–Thomas House collection contains furnishings and decorative arts from the English Regency period. Collections include English Georgian and American Federal period furniture, early Savannah textiles, Chinese Export porcelain, 18th- and 19th-century art; the slave quarters feature slave artifacts of the period. The courtyard features a small parterre garden, redesigned in 1954 by Savannah landscape architect Clermont Huger Lee. Lee designed the formal garden in 1820 English-American style and supervised maintenance of garden for fourteen years.

Route 66 Park

Route 66 Mural Park operates as a public park as a touchstone for US Route 66 tourists as well as for local preservers of U. S. Route 66 in Missouri; the park includes two large tile murals proposed by Paul Whitehill, produced by Images In Tile USA and designed by artists Chris Auckerman and Jon White. The park features a bifurcated red sports car that anyone on pilgrimage can slide up beside and have a quickie photograph taken. Close to the intersection of 7th Street and Main, the mural covers the south side of Pearl Brothers, the iconic green hardware store of downtown Joplin. Near that same intersection, US Route 66 once headed into Kansas. During the 1960s and 1970s, urban renewal was demolishing one historical building after another in the downtown district of Joplin, but there were some benefits of the renewal. In 1970, city planners wedged a small park called "Mall Park" between some of the major 7th street buildings; the park connected a large back-alley parking lot to the downtown district, shifting the focus from wheel traffic to foot traffic and making the high-rise merchandising stores more accessible to any who parked off of the main drag.

Over time, the intricate brickwork of this park began to deteriorate and work was required to breathe new life into once trafficked public space. Paul Whitehill proposed the idea to create a Route 66 mural for Joplin to Chris Auckerman and Jon White of Images in Tile USA's art department. After much thought and planning, vision became art. Local sponsors assembled and helped them design the lower mural for tourists and visitors as a memorable photo opportunity, one that captures Joplin's place on Route 66. Europeans make the trek across Route 66 every year and more for the festivals – 15,000 visitors from 25 states and 14 countries came to Joplin, Springfield and other towns along the route for the Route 66 International Festival; these are the kinds of visitors. Other photo opportunities like the mural park have cropped up in the wake of the growing trend; this trend may have come about through the 2006 release of the animated film Cars which tossed a spotlight upon the country-wide effort to both save and restore local U.

S. Route 66 main street businesses in any town, bypassed and forgotten during the interstate system shift. Though big enough in population to withstand the effects of I-44 interstate pulling business both south and east of the city's historic hub, Joplin was affected in a parallel manner to the tiny mining and tourist towns that once peppered the landscape of Route 66 – through the surge of national chains like Walmart and McDonald's that neutered the reach of mom-and-pop shops. Through renewed interest in the Mother Road, international media coverage of the 2011 Joplin tornado, its ongoing underground art revival, Joplin's downtown got its groove back. All of the downtown murals track this progress. After years of planning, the city dedicated Route 66 Mural Park during the first Third Thursday of the 2013 season. Once they had affixed the murals to Pearl Brothers, they dedicated them at the international Route 66 festival during the seventh season of Joplin's Third Thursday art walk; the public park had been neglected for twenty years.

The site features a large mockup of a 45 record cut into the walkway, the center of which swaps out to accommodate the divergent spirits of various special events. A concrete slab nearby has been retrofitted into an all-weather map of the four states, with an emphasis on Missouri and Oklahoma, they marked the entrance by a retaining wall with a clean-cut emboss reading "Route 66 Joplin, Missouri." A string of Route 66 tile murals will span the winding path from up in Chicago all the way down to Santa Monica, but Joplin received the first in the series
