- * Note about former owner – Anita Witt was a writer, historian and Western personality. She was a true cowgirl, from her upbringing in Wichita, Kansas, to her five decades living on her ranch in Missouri Heights outside of Carbondale. She traveled as part of the old Mild West Rodeo Co., which was based out of Carbondale. She went from rodeo to rodeo, doing shows all over town including at local festivals, senior centers and more, showing off her roping, trick horses, songs and stories.
- A proponent for preserving Western heritage in the valley, Anita is a big reason the old schoolhouse in Missouri Heights is still standing and being preserved for future generations.
