Jump back in history has we head to the historic town of Jackson, MO established in 1814 and on the list of National Register of Historic Districts. We will first stop at the Whistle Stop to board the Iron Mountain Railroad. We will enjoy wine-tasting as we get settled into the train with 93 year old train cars. Once on your board, we will be delighted with a Murder Mystery lunch. When we return to the station, we will hop on the bus for a guide tour of historic Jackson.
