In 1969, the 75th General Assembly set aside the third Wednesday in October as Missouri Day. Missouri Day is a time for schools to honor the state and for the people of the state to celebrate the achievements of all Missourians. Come commemorate our unique state and learn about the state symbols of Missouri in a fun, interactive approach. The event is organized into stations and groups are invited to wander through each station and spend as much or as little time at each exhibit as they wish. The event will be held in the buildings and on the grounds where our first legislators and senators met from 1821-1826 to undertake the task of reorganizing Missouri's territorial government into a progressive state system. This is a free event and is open to the public. School groups are encouraged to make reservations. For more information, please call the site at 636-940-3322. Click here to read the news release.
