Mid-Missouri's CAPITAL MALL was officially dedicated in February of 1978. During its early years, Sears (off of the left end of of this photo) was its solitary anchor.
One of many classic mall and retro retail internet sites, the MALL HALL OF FAME is a "Mid-mod Mall Museum", centered on American shopping centers built during the mid-20th century (1946-1979). There are short articles, photos, and at least one physical layout drawing for every mall inducted. Please check your favorite mall articles often as new content is frequently being added.
