Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.

Shadow Rest Ministries

Shadow Rest Ministeries 04-29-2014Driving down West Cape Rock Drive on the way to pick up Dick McClard, I noticed what I thought was a small, white church high on a hill. When I mentioned it, Dick said the road off Hwy 635 was washed out, but we could get to it from another direction.

After a day of rambling, we ended up at Shadow Rest Ministries, a spiritual retreat with some of the most relaxing cabins I’ve seen anywhere. I’d like to go back and do the place justice. Click on the photos to make them larger.

The Yurt

Yurt at Shadow Rest Ministries 04-29-2014The most intriguing structure was a yurt, a wood lattice frame with a durable fabric cover. We were there on a very windy day, but the inside of the building was almost soundproof. There was no sense that we were in a fabric building.

Simple and comfortable

Yurt at Shadow Rest Ministries 04-29-2014All of the facilities I saw were unique and very comfortable. This is inside the yurt.
