With its location on the border between the south and the Midwest and the west and the east, Missouri is often thought of as a gateway state between these different regions. Culturally, the state is divided between these different regions as well, with a heavy southern influence near the Ozark Mountains on the state''s southern border and more Midwestern in the northern regions. Historically, Missouri was the starting point of the Oregon Trail and the Pony Express Trail, which has led to the state being known as the Gateway to the West. The Gateway Arch, one of the tallest historical sites in the United States, was built in St. Louis, the largest metropolitan area in Missouri. Farming is a major industry in Missouri, especially the farming of cattle, pigs and soybeans. The state is also known for the production of aerospace machinery, electrical equipment and the printing of books. Natural resources have also been found in Missouri, especially lead, coal and limestone. The lead mines, in the eastern regions of the state, are still more productive, a hundred years after their peak, than lead mines in many other parts of the world. Education is important in Missouri and the state is home to a number of prestigious universities, including Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Missouri in Columbia. In university sports, Missouri schools have a fierce rivalry with Kansas schools, though many Kansans support the professional teams in Missouri. The hockey team the St. Louis Blues, the football teams the St. Louis Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs and the baseball teams the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals are all popular teams in Missouri. In 1904, the state was also the first in the United States to host the Summer Olympics.
