The historic Union Cemetery sits on a hill just south of Hallmark's headquarters here in Kansas City. Tucked away in this quiet setting you can find the grave of Alexander Majors, one of the founders of the Pony Express. In 1900, a few weeks after his death, Majors was eulogized in The Kansas City Star. The newspaper described him as "the man who first comprehended the fact that Kansas City should be the great merchandise distributing point on the Missouri River and who, more than any other in his time, furthered the development of that destiny." | KC Parks Instagram Photos
