Re: Rail Resort, La Plata, Missouri
Local developers are moving ahead with the planning for a unique Rail Resort, encompassing the highly successful Depot Inn near the BNSF lines in La Plata, Missouri. Nationally-renown Cultural Attraction designer Barry Howard has been retained to provide master planning and conceptual design for the project.
Mr. Howard's firm was the designer of the Bi-Centennial American Freedom Train (attended by 35 million visitors over a twenty-one month period), the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, The Galveston Center for Transportation and Commerce, Galveston, TX, Steamtown National Historic Site, Scranton, PA; Visitor Centers at Hoover Dam, Mount St. Helens, Harry S Truman Dam and Reservoir, Warsaw Mo, and many other significant projects that can be viewed at
The Barry Howard team will be developing economic studies, plans, and concepts for the Resort. Project elements under consideration include an indoor water park, an Exhibition of Amtrak history, rail access and internal transportation systems, a train-watching tower, event venues, themed dining and shopping, a variety of attractions and links to historic sites in surrounding Northeastern Missouri.
The planning effort will be completed within the next six months.
