Interpretive Programs and Tours

at Battle of Athens State Historic Site

Interpretive programs are offered at the historic site for schools, groups and organizations. Off-site programs are also offered within a 60-mile radius of the historic site. Farther distances within the state of Missouri are possible, dependent on staff schedules and the location. Please call 660-877-3871 for more information or to schedule your group.


Out of caution, all planned group tours or school groups, including tours at the Missouri state Capitol, are suspended through April 30 in order to avoid large congregations of people in confined areas. In addition, all indoor guided tours, including tours of historic buildings and caves are suspended through April 30. Self-guided tours of visitor centers, museums and nature centers remain open at this time.

Tour the Thome-Benning House free of charge. Tours are temporarily suspended now through April 30.

Large groups are encouraged to call ahead and check on the availability of staff members. Please contact historic site staff at 660-877-3871 to make arrangements.
