What Bert Has To Say About Joplin Metro Area

This old zinc mining and Route 66 town until recently had the lowest living and housing costs in the country. Reaching its heyday in the early 20th century, the city and area had a long period of decline. Led by some diversified manufacturing, including bedding manufacturer Leggett & Platt, and some trucking industries favoring the central U.S. location, the economy is improving.
