Connor Hotel - Joplin, Mo.
2 of my Uncles worked at the Connor Hotel in Joplin, Mo. when they were in the 20's.
After one of them passed away I found this key at his home. Iam a history geek and love all sorts of antiques so this key became one of my favorite pieces. Unfortunately the Connor was to be torn down in the late 70's but the day before it was to be imploded it fell with 3 men inside it. One of the men died. We have lost so much of our history because of the idea of modernization in the 70's. I hope you enjoy this piece.
