Join us at First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site to commemorate the 202nd birthday of our great state! The historic first state Capitol will be open for walk-through, self-guided tours, and activities will be taking place in the backyard! Come and learn about some of Missouri’s state symbols; experience traditional crafts and skills, and enjoy old-fashioned toys and games! Don’t miss the free birthday cake and lemonade too!

As part of Missouri State Parks’ annual public meetings, there will be booths with information about First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site as well as Edward “Ted” and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park and the eastern section of Katy Trail State Park. The public is invited to share comments about all three facilities and their operations.

Information regarding First Missouri State Capitol will cover the site’s annual garden plantings, its new penny press machine, plans for the future, group tours and programs, how the site can cater to classroom curriculums, and more.

Input from the public is important to Missouri State Parks. These public meetings, which are being held for all state parks and historic sites, help create two-way communication with the public. The meetings give representatives the opportunity to let people know the current statuses and future plans for the parks and sites, and they offer visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.

First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site is located at:
