Who We Are

We are a diverse group of citizens in support of saving the only remaining ticket office from Excelsior Springs, Missouri’s water history. Out of almost 50 well and spring sites that once stood within our downtown, this is the only original structure that remains, hidden inside of a house that was built around it. Other communities in the metro area would love to have our heritage, so we must preserve what is left!

The area of town where the Superior office is located is adjacent to the Fishing River Linear Park, a historic park area along the banks of the Fishing River. The area was once the focus of landscape architect George E. Kessler, who helped develop the park area.

The project of the Superior Well Office will be done with NO ADDITIONAL TAX DOLLARS! Through our partnership with the City and the Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives, the Steering Committee will complete the project solely with donations, volunteer time and donated materials.

Our kick off for the fundraising campaign beganĀ a year ago and we are taking donations and pledges now. We invite you to be listed as a “Kicker” by helping us begin the campaign. Please complete the online pledge form and make online payment or send your check made payable to Superior Office Steering Committee or SOCC and mail to the Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives, P.O. Box 144, Excelsior Springs, MO 64024 as soon as you can!


Thank you for your support!
