“Hi. I was going through some old photos, and found this. Then after Googling to see what the shopping center was up to lately, I came on your ugly postcard post on MLive.com and thought you might like a copy of this photo.I took this photo when I was there in 1999. My car had stranded me there and I was just walking around near the hotel I was staying at. This plaque amused the (heck) out of me; you should be able to read it now.
“Two boys, Harry S. Truman and J. Vivian Truman, and their sister Mary Jane Truman, once lived on, worked and ploughed the farmland on which this shopping center now stands. In the great American tradition, one boy went from these fields to become the president of the United States. The brother and sister became outstanding civic leaders. Now, in one lifetime, the farm again contributes to the great American dream of opportunity and progress by become the site of one of the nation’s finest shopping centers. Truman Corners Town and Country Shoppers’ City. Dedicated to the Truman family, the people of Greater Kansas City and all the United States. This could only happen in America.”
