Missouri has an adopt a highway program like most states do nowadays. In fact, Missouri's program is 20 years old. Back in the 1990s the program got a lot of press when they denied the KKK's application for "adopting" a highway. The KKK sued and took it to court and won. When Missouri was forced to let the Klan have it's sign they renamed the highway, the Rosa Parks highway. When I was out taking pictures yesterday and saw this sign, I remembered this story and thought it was worth sharing.
