Vernon Ewing Bar-B-Que, Warrensburg, MO
 "Club 15" Ewing's Bar B Cue Meats, Mr. Ewing....100 South Warren. Warrensburg Main Street Inc.

This former honky-tonk grew out of a railroad flagman's shack. It kept growing, so his friends could hang out with him. After crossing lights were installed it kept going as a hangout, grocery, BBQ place, and finally, Club 15. It could never be legally sold, because it was built half on railroad right-of-way, and half on Marshall St. right-of-way! During property inventories, after Union Pacific bought MO Pacific railroad, it was discovered and removed.

The The Nace Brothers had a song called "Club 15" they recorded in 1993 on MCA Records. The c.d., Margaritaville Cafe Late Night Menu, featured Jimmy Buffett and various other artists. It earned them the opening spot on a series of Jimmy Buffett shows, with whom they remain in close contact with, still opening shows on the "Club Trini" stage and getting the party started. Any connection between Wbg's Club 15 and this song? Yes there is go to youtube to see it and to itunes to download it...

November 18, 1973  Wal Mart Opens In Warrensburg
Warrensburg History:
Supercenter OpeningThe first Wal-Mart opened in Warrensburg on November 18th, 1973 in a 45,000 square foot location near Holiday Inn. The Warrensburg Wal-Mart became the 65th retail location for the fledgling company, which had been started by Sam Walton and his brother J.L. "Bud" Walton in Arkansas in 1969. In 1973, Wal-Mart had yet to become the global phenomenon it is today, and was confined to just 54 cities in Arkansas and Missouri. When it first opened in Warrensburg, Wal-Mart employed 115 employees, including four assistant managers and one general manager, making it one of the largest employers in Warrensburg in 1973. Sam Walton was on hand for the ceremonies for the grand opening.

On September 15th, 1993, Wal-Mart opened its current location in Warrensburg, the Wal-Mart Supercenter located at 301 E. Cooper at the north end of town. The new location, which replaced the original discount store opened in 1973, is 200,000 square feet in size and for the first time ever, would be open for 24 hours a day. The Central Missouri State University Mules Pep Band, along with county officials and other featured speakers, were on hand to celebrate the new location's grand opening. Some of the employees at the new location had been with the company for more than 15 years, and one employee, Julie Kimery, had been with Wal-Mart for 21 years.

The Teehaus Wal-Mart Interviews:
The Teehaus InterviewsDan Marshall conducted a series of interviews at a Warrensburg social gathering point, called The Teehaus, to find out if any of its patrons remembered Warrensburg prior to when Wal-Mart began operating in the city. In addition, he collected their opinions on Wal-Mart's influence on the city and whether Warrensburg had benefited from Wal-Mart's presence.

The Teehaus is a local restaurant/cafe/tea-house in Warrensburg, MO. It was founded in 1969 and is located in the heart of the downtown area and is also within walking distance of the CMSU campus. Because it is frequented by both students from CMSU and local residents of the town, it seemed like a good place to go to get reactions on how WalMart has affected the local community. Because of the atmosphere (a college tea house, art work on sale, funk, soul, and bluegrass playing in the background), the client�le and staff do tend to lean towards the left politically, but are otherwise fairly representative of the Warrensburg community.
