Crane's is one of the few remaining real country stores in the United States. Built in 1926, the current building is located on Old 40 in beautiful downtown Williamsburg. Crane's has been a gathering spot for many generations. Started in 1899 in Mineola, Missouri, Crane's has been the go to place for trade in a 60 mile radius. Carrying groceries, guns, hardware, gas, deli, clothing, boots, and feed, Crane's tries to be a one stop shop. Crane's is famous for its One Meat-One Cheese, Two Dollar sandwiches (all on white bread). They are also famous for their wide selection of Carhartt Clothing, Wolverine Boots, and Filson Outerwear. If you need to be outfitted for whatever the world can throw at you, Crane's can help you out. Crane's ships too! Crane's Country Store since 1926. A true general store that carries everything from boots, bullets, britches and bologna. Now on the 4th generation Crane family ownership.
Gray Ghosts Trail Inn sits on the Gray Ghosts Trail, where 'bloody Bill Anderson' stormed through, picking up guerillas on his way to destroy the first county seat of Missouri: Danville. We are proud of our historical connection to the civil war trail. The house was built in 1905 and reopened in July, 2013.

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.
