Joplin, Missouri

Looking great in '08

Originally a drug store, Wilder's has been in business in Joplin since 1929. In the 1930s, they moved to their current location and began operating as a full-service restaurant. The 40-foot mahogany bar still occupying the main dining room today is part of an extensive post-WWII remodeling.
