Arrow Rock State Historic Site [MO]

Arrow Rock State Historic Site is an integral part of the town of Arrow Rock. The site's visitor center museum features exhibits that tell about Arrow Rock and the historic "Boone's Lick Country." The Bingham Home, built by Missouri's preeminent artist of the 1800s, George Caleb Bingham, has been restored and furnished as it might have been when he lived there. The Huston Tavern, dating back to 1834, stands ready to serve you its traditional hearty fare. The old courthouse, a town doctor's home, a stone jail and other historic buildings are part of a walking tour offered at the site.

The site offers exhibits, tours, demonstrations, educational programs, and occasional educational and recreational events.
