Statehood Day Celebration

8/9/2014 | First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site | St. Charles, MO

Help celebrate Missouri's 193rd birthday. Missouri became the 24th state on Aug. 10, 1821. This event will feature special demonstrations, interpreters in period dress and an open house. The public is invited to view the buildings where the state’s first senators and representatives met from 1821 to 1826 to go about the business of operating as a new state. The Peck Brothers Dry Goods and Hardware Store and residence are also included during the open house and festivities. Bring the kids to learn about Missouri's state symbols and play some games from the 1820s, when Missouri became a state.

At 1 p.m., the World Bird Sanctuary will present their "Raptor Awareness" program, which highlights native Missouri species.

And, oh yes, what's a birthday party without free cake and punch? For more information, please call the site. Click here to read the press release.
