  3. I’ve always known this as the Missouri Hotel. From 1936 to 1945 it was the Milner (see ghost). Prior to that it was The Green Tavern and was considered one of the finest hotels west of the Mississippi. Now vacant it spent the prior couple of decades as a homeless shelter.

  5. Sort of a ghost. I saw this logo on the back of a tall showcase in a flea market. Sort of fancy for something one would almost never see.

  7. This old store building has been gone for a few years now (replaced by the boom of 4-story apartment buildings 10-feet from the street that have been popping up around Missouri State University lately). At one point I was dreaming of putting in a bar/bar-b-que joint and keeping a version of the original name of Flummerfelt's (Meat) Market (the ghostier ghost at the top). Sadly it was on the wrong side of the street from the protected district.

  8. Ghosts of the newer signs on Commercial Street in Springfield, Missouri.

    That sign best belongs right where it is, but if were to go elsewhere, for whatever reason (demolition, changed use of the building, midnight acquisition, etc.) I happen to know a guy who would love having it.
