Great tour, well presented, interesting history. A must do when in St Charles!
Great historical district with restaurants, shops
Right in the heart of old St. Charles, this set of buildings represents the very first of Missouri's legislative centers. The visitor center is small, but has lots of information to share, and tours of the capitol building are on offer. You're free to roam the grounds, which includes a lovely backyard area with river views. The yard contains gardens and plantings of all kinds, as well as sitting areas and plenty of shade. The first capitol is an important part of Missouri's history, and the historic site preserves it wonderfully!
They give a nice tour of the rooms. There are antique furnishings in all of the rooms. It's a must see for history buffs. There is a small fee and a gift shop.
Awesome historical site. The tour was well worth it, guide was very knowledgeable. So nice to see such an important place restored to it's original character. The visitor's center has an informative video that shows details from the 6 year research and rebuild project. They also have displays upstairs showing Missouri's path to statehood. Tons of period artifacts, and the House and Senate chambers are set up as they would have been in the 1820's. It's not very big, so you can see it all in a couple hours.
