In honor of #InternationalWomensDay we are featuring the Pioneer Mother Memorial in #KCParks Penn Valley Park. Presented to the people of Kansas City by Howard Vanderslice, the inscription reads: “To commemorate the Pioneer Mother who with unfaltering trust in God suffered the hardship of the unknown west to prepare for us a homeland of peace and plenty”. Vanderslice’s own mother had traveled across the plains in search of a better life.
