Hopecam, the team cool enough to beat the heat today, rolled into Race Across America Time Station 34 at Washington, Missouri about 20 minutes ago. We thank Alan Miller & Carol Molesky for their support!
Wikipedia says, “Family and followers of Daniel Boone settled the area around Washington starting in 1799. In 1814 a ferry boat was licensed for crossing the Missouri River to the north and the settlement became known as Washington Landing. In 1827, a town was laid out, with sale of lots starting in 1829. The cost of land was waived if the buyer could build a substantial house within two years. This encouraged many new settlers.”
