The village of Arrow Rock is known far and wide for its exemplary efforts in historic preservation. Here's your opportunity for a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the town's most impressive preservation projects with two preservationists who live and work with the buildings daily.
The day begins with a luncheon at the J. Huston Tavern, the oldest continually serving restaurant west of the Mississippi River. Following lunch, Mike Dickey, Arrow Rock State Historic Site Administrator, will tour the 1834 tavern and the 1837 Bingham House, a National Historic Landmark. Marty Selby, Friends of Arrow Rock Properties Manager, will take you through the c. 1830s Miller Bradford House and the 1870s remodeled John P. Sites House.

Missouri Girls Town takes in girls from around the state of Missouri who have been abused and neglected. It is a place where these girls can feel safe, heal from their past, and work toward building a better life.
Each year Girls Town hosts an open house for the public and for our supporters throughout the state and beyond. The open house consists of tours of the residence halls, the group home, the cafeteria building, recreation building, school, and administrative offices.
A meal is served at noon and there will be an auction and entertainment provided by the resident girls. This is a great opportunity for everyone to come by, enjoy the activities, and see for themselves how Girls Town cares for and helps girls who have not had an easy start in life.
Meet at the J. Huston Tavern for lunch accompanied by special wine pairings. Dessert will be followed by coffee and a tour of Prairie Park, the historic 1849 plantation house built by William B. Sappington, son of prominent frontier doctor and entrepreneur Dr. John Sappington.
Owners Day and Whitney Kerr and Friends of Arrow Rock Executive Director Kathy Borgman will conduct the tour of the house, noted for its beautiful architectural details and period furnishings, including many Sappington family heirlooms.
Prairie Park is located 3.5 miles from Arrow Rock. Guests will travel in their own vehicles. $30/person includes lunch, wine and tour. Reservations necessary: 660-837-3200 or firstname.lastname@example.org
