Been There Ornament – Missouri

A big portion of the front of Starbucks Been There Ornament Missouri mug is occupied by train. My guess this is related to Missouri Pacific Railroad, which was one of the first railroads in the United States west of the Mississippi River. Also:
– Stamp with a horseshoe – I think that’s for the Pony Express, which was a mail service delivering messages, newspapers, and mail between St. Joseph, Missouri and Sacramento, California.
– Ship’s wheel – marks the legendary steamboat era on the Missouri River
– White Hawthorn Blossom – state’s official flower
