Show Me Amusements History

Elizabeth “Coco” and Morris come from a history of 3 generations of carnival shows. Coco’s Grandfather Izzy Wells and grandmother Ruth Wells owned a show that was on the railroad called the Reynolds and Wells show.

Coco’s parents Lyle and Jackie Wells and their partner owned the S & W shows which traveled thru Minnesota,Iowa,Arkansas and Missouri.

Morris parents Delmar and Evelyn also owned a show which he worked for many years.

Eventually after working both their parents shows for many years both Coco and Morris decided to have a show of their own “show me amusements” and continue the family’s legacies in the Amusement business.
