About Missouri

Schools in Missouri

Missouri is known as the "Show Me State," a moniker which might confuse first-time visitors. There are many legends surrounding the origins of this motto, but the most popular explanation attributes it to Missouri congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903.

One night during a speech, Vandiver remarked, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me."

This just about sums up Missouri's curious, proud spirit. The state has a lot to be proud of, at that; cities like St. Louis and the capital city of Jefferson City are thriving, lively areas. Missouri's state bird is the bluebird, though its major league baseball team is the St. Louis Cardinals. Its state song is the "Missouri Waltz."
