What Bert Has To Say About St. Joseph Metro Area

St. Joseph, once the eastern terminus of the Pony Express, is a former frontier and meat packing center that has today evolved into more of a mixed agricultural and industrial center. The diverse economy ranges from fence wire to Stetson hats to Sara Lee baked goods, but the economic outlook is uncertain. The future depends on the city’s ability to attract businesses looking for an alternative to Kansas City.
