The TeeHaus Remembered Online (And In My College Memories)
So I don't know if you remember this, but I went to college at UCM.Of course back then it was called Central Missouri State University. I was there in the late nineties/early 2000's. My boss recently showed me a post from the Johnson County Historical Society to a social media group about Warrensburg.
I lived there off campus for a few years during college, and a few after. I have a lot of memories of a few times when I lived in a specific house not far from Downtown Warrensburg. In fact, it was easy walking distance. We lived about seven kids in a five bedroom house (college) and were all big time nerds. I had my own nerdy things and so did everyone else, each one individual. But we had some things we liked to do together, and one of those things was to walk down to the Tee Haus. It was maybe a five minute walk, which was tolerable even in winter. So when the JCHS posted some old photos, it took me down memory lane. Do you remember?
The Tee Haus
Most of the time when we went down there, it was a weekday. Usually Tuesdays or Wednesdays. There would be card games or just chattin, and the usual staff would be around. Now I wasn't there when this video was filmed (this was years after my time) but you can see what it was like back then and how it didn't change that much over the years here.
I think the Tee Haus was one of those distinct Warrensburg places that we won't see again for a while. But isn't that the way it's supposed to be? Something lives and becomes special in your memory, and eventually it moves on to something else. It was nice to be there, nice to experience it, and of course, I'll remember it for a long time, even if it is in bits and pieces.
Do you have any memories of the Tee Haus? Do you think a place like the Tee Haus would do well today? Does Sedalia need something like this?
