Pioneer play

June 5, 2013 

Mary Wiberg, who will be a freshman at Lee’s Summit West High School, plays a pioneer-style game of catch with Maverick Blake, 4, of Grain Valley, June 1, at Missouri Town 1855 in Fleming Park. Wiberg has been a volunteer at Jackson County’s Missouri Town for three years, and was teaching games to visitors for Children’s Day. Missouri Town is a village recreating life in western Missouri before the Civil War, with buildings dating from 1820s to 1850s, which were threatened with demolition, and so dismantled and reassembled at the site.
