1935 Frisco Caboose.

Flower Pots

These planters date back to 1913 and were originally home to the  Old Frisco Railroad  Depot in Valley Park, MO. When the Frisco Railroad removed the depot in the late 1970”s, at the request of Walt Jessen, a retired railroad foreman the planters were transported by crane to his residence  on Forest Avenue. The City of Valley Park approached the Jessen family about  moving the planters back to Frisco Park. The “Jessen Family” all agreed to donate the planters to the city and they have been placed near their original location June 20, 2013.
