Cuba, Missouri

The Cuba Murals in Missouri is a set of 12 murals along Route 66 that all explain a certain point in history. One great way to see the murals is to take a trolley tour around town. One mural that is interesting depicts the civil war fight that happened around the town. Another mural depicts an old school car in the corner of town, with what looks like a man trying to fix something wrong with the old school car. There is a mural of a local banker, A.J. Barnett, who was the first man in Cuba to own a Model T. There is a beautiful mural of some soliders boarding the “Blue Bonnett” train as family waves goodbye, because that is a classic train that was used to transport soliders during WWII. Along with these, there are other beautiful murals around Cuba that you must take some time to explore while in town.
