Edmund Albert Steckel, founder of Ozark Springs Resort at Turkey Ridge, Missouri, in #PulaskiCountyUSA

Edmund Albert Steckel, founder of Ozark Springs Resort at Turkey Ridge, Missouri.



Today’s #ThrowbackThursday is a tribute to #PulaskiCountyUSA’s busiest man, Edmund Albert Steckel. During the years of his constant flurry of activity, 1909-1928, E.A. Steckel opened Ozark Springs Resort in 1922. The old resort property is still a destination today as visitors, tourists, and curiosity seekers travel to The Cave Restaurant & Resort to enjoy a meal in the restaurant that is located inside a pre-historic cave that overlooks the Gasconade River.

To learn more about E.A. Steckel, Ozark Springs Resort, & Turkey Ridge, please refer to the 2011 edition of the Old Settlers Gazette which can be found here: http://www.oldstagecoachstop.org/webgeezer/Gazette11/E.%20A.%20Steckel%20Ozark%20Springs.pdf
