At the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, William Woods student Helen Stephens won two gold medals. Many of her mementos are on display in the Helen Stephens Sports Complex on the William Woods University campus.
Known as the “Fulton Flash,” Stephens won nine Amateur Athletic Union track-and-field titles by the age of 18. Stephens drew the public eye as a brilliant champion in the 1936 Olympics, when she ran the 100 meters in 11.5 seconds – setting a world record that stood for 24 years.
“The Fulton Flash” won a second gold as anchor leg in the 400-meter relay. As an amateur she set world, Olympic, American and Canadian records in running, broad jump and discus.
After winning three more U.S. national titles (50 meters, shot put, 200 meters), Stephens retired from competitive track. During her 30-month career, she competed in more than 100 races, winning every one of them. She and Jesse Owens headlined a tour before Stephens moved on to briefly play professional basketball and softball.
Shady campsites, hot showers, fire rings, fishing at several stocked lakes, and a playground for the kids all are available at this owner-occupied park.

In 1946, at Westminster College in Fulton, Winston Churchill delivered one of the most significant speeches of his long and illustrious career. That address, formally entitled, "The Sinews of Peace," is better known as the Iron Curtain Speech, because of the evocative phrase: "An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent..." That speech effectively marked the beginning of the Cold War and linked, forever, Fulton and Westminster College with Winston Churchill.
In the 1960s, Westminster College sought to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Churchill's visit and ultimately chose to move a Christopher Wren designed Church from London. This Church, St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, had stood in London since 1677. This magnificent building, badly damaged during the London Blitz, was moved stone by stone to Westminster's campus and rebuilt to Wren's original specifications.
Beneath this Church is the National Churchill Museum. Through the imaginative and innovative use of technology, it brings to life the story of Winston Churchill and the world he knew. The museum was recognized by the United States Congress as America's permanent tribute to this great man, and formally designated as America's National Churchill Museum.
The museum presents Sir Winston's life, utilizing interactive sight, sound and touch. Stand in the midst of a dazzling light and sound show to see and hear the effects of a London air raid at the height of "The Blitz." In the stirring film, Churchill's Finest Hour (narrated by Walter Cronkite), watch Churchill lead Britain through World War II.
Two sculptures, one statue, and an English garden complete the museum grounds. One sculpture, titled Breakthrough, is constructed from eight consecutive sections of the actual Berlin Wall.
School programs, community programs, group tours, and rotating exhibits fill the museum's calendar. For a current look at programming, visit our website.
The museum is closed New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
