Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Missouri - Wood Laser Cut Map
This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Shannon, Carter, Dent, and Texas Counties, Missouri with the following interesting stats carved into it:
In 1912, a group of outdoorsmen founded the Shannon County Hunting and Fishing Club using their influence to promote the idea of a state park that would protect the Jacks Fork River. It wasn't until 1964 that their dream was finally realized with the establishment of Ozark National Scenic Riverways. The Riverways encompassed not only the Jacks Fork, but also the Current River.
Approximately 80,000 acres of rugged land along the banks of Jacks Fork and Current Rivers form Ozark National Scenic Riverways. This national park includes parts of Shannon, Carter, Dent, and Texas Counties in southeastern Missouri.
The national park contains the world's largest collection of first magnitude springs (springs that discharge water at a rate of at least 100 cubic feet of water per second). It also contains over 300 known caves, numerous sinkholes and losing streams.
You can choose the stand out map which is mounted onto a tranquil blue back with a key hole cut on the back, ready to hang.

Interesting factoid: Back in 1913, an Illinois doctor named C.H. Diehl bought Welch Spring for eight hundred dollars. Dr Diehl believed that the spring water had healing properties and that cool, pollen free air coming from the adjacent cave would be beneficial for people with asthma, emphysema, and tuberculosis, which together were called "consumption" at the time. To tap this clean air resource, Dr Diehl built a hospital over the mouth of the cave. Welch Spring, which flowed from the cave, was dammed up so that water would close off the entrance. This was to force more air out through the cave opening into the hospital. In today's terms, it might be better called a "health spa".
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
All maps include special points of interest laser engraved into the map face and come with a beautiful blue self-adhesive Swarovski Crystal to mark your preferred location on the map (see sample picture).
Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. If you would prefer lighter or darker don't hesitate to ask. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.) Birch is our wood of preference.
Once the map is cut and engraved we hand sand multiple times, assemble and clear coat them for a lustrous wood shine. We believe that this personal attention each and every item receives makes each wooden item a unique work of art.
Made in the USA by American workers in an American owned business.
Please note on smaller maps (13 x 16 and 14 x 17 framed) it may be hard to read road names and if the lake has islands they will not be included.
