Did you know that the first Olympic Games held in the US were held in Missouri? Beyond that, the 1904 Summer Olympics held in St. Louis were also the first Olympic Games to be held outside of Europe! Due to conflicts globally, a vast majority of those that competed in these games were from North America; in fact, only about 11% of athletes were from other continents.

These 1904 Summer Olympics also coincided with the 1904 Worlds’ Fair in St. Louis, where multiple modern-day favorites were allegedly created. Among them were iced tea, and ice cream cones, when an ice cream vendor apparently ran out of bowls and recruited the help of a waffle vendor for an alternate solution!
