First Saturday Lecture

6/3/2017 | Arrow Rock State Historic Site | Arrow Rock, MO

Standing in dozens of towns throughout Missouri are stone and iron reminders of frontier justice. From Arrow Rock's one-room calaboose to Jefferson City's eerie penitentiary, historian and author Paul Kirkman presents a snapshot of crime and punishment from Missouri's past. Stories both humorous and soulful are attached to many of these structures, reflecting Missouri's wild and difficult youth. The unsung and underpaid lawmen, who often lived with their families within the same walls as their charges, will be discussed as well. This one-hour lecture is free and open to the public.

Event time: 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
