CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) – Old Town Cape announced earlier this year that the “Oliver-Leming House” is the 2013 Christmas ornament.
The 2013 ornament is a limited edition, numbered piece produced by Hestia and is the seventeenth in a series.
“We have such great reception for our ornaments and it is a way to raise awareness of and to commemorate the local sites and historic places in our community. It was special that this year we could commemorate the home where the Missouri flag originated in its 100th year anniversary,” said Marla Mills, Executive Director of Old Town Cape.
The Missouri state flag was designed in 1913 by Marie Watkins Oliver, wife of Sen. R.B. Oliver, at their home at 749 North Street.
