Public Meeting and Statehood Day Event

8/10/2024 | First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site | St. Charles, MO

The public is invited to an open-house style public meeting for First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site, Edward "Ted" and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park, and the eastern section of Katy Trail State Park. Representatives from Missouri State Parks will be on hand to provide information about these facilities and answer questions. The public is encouraged to share comments about the facilities and their operations.

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.

Public meeting time: 1 p.m. - 2 p.m.

The public meeting will be held in conjunction with First Missouri State Capitol's annual Statehood Day event which celebrates and commemorates the 203rd birthday of our great state! The historic First Capitol building will be open for walk-through, self-guided tours and fun, family-friendly activities such as a state symbol scavenger hunt will be taking place in the backyard! No birthday celebration is complete without cake, available while supplies last.

Informational booths will be available about recent projects at the site. Information will also be available about school and group tours or programs. 

This walk-up style event is free and open to the public. There is no registration, and visitors are welcome to browse and stay as long as they like.
