Additional Information: 

Guy Brasfield Park (1872-1946) was the Democratic governor of Missouri from 1933-1937.  Governor Park earned his law degree from the University of Missouri, and worked as a lawyer in Denver, Colorado for a short time before returning to Platte County, Missouri in 1900 where he began a life in public service as the City Attorney.  He was a member of the Missouri State Constitutional Convention in 1922, and a Fifth Judicial Circuit Judge from 1923-1932. 

As Governor, Park helped establish state relief programs which coordinated with federal programs instituted by the Roosevelt administration during the Depression.  In his honor, Platte County established the Guy B. Park Conservation Area, which is a wildlife preserve offering bird watching, fishing, hiking and hunting to visitors.
