Fun Facts

  • Look closely at the weathervane atop Kirk Memorial building on the Truman State University campus: it doesn't move! But that's intentional; in 1996, the school welded the weathervane in place so it always points northeast, as an homage to the school's former name, Northeast Missouri State.
