“To Honor and Teach Missouri's past”

This museum, which began in 1975, is located in Hodge Park. It is a gathering of 19th century buildings; dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Missouri's early history and architecture. The facility is open daily for self-guided walking tours. The area features 20 structures, including clapboard houses, a school, a church, and log cabins. Walking tour maps are available at the front gate, the kiosk, or the porch of the Mercantile. Picnic tables are available. During the summer, weather permitting, the buildings are open so visitors may view the interiors through closed gates. Private tours are available by reservation. The site hosts many special events throughout the year, including 1st Saturdays, 9am-2pm, June-September; the Harvest Festival, 10am-4:30pm, the second Saturday in October; and A Visit From St. Nicholas, 10am-4pm, the first Saturday in December.
