Climb aboard an old west mule-drawn, covered wagon for an easy tour of the Independence Square, home of three historic “westward ho” trails.

Several tour itineraries are offered. They might include: two Civil War battle sites; the 1859 Jail that held Frank James; the slave-built 1827 courthouse; the home where Bess Truman was born; and Clinton's Soda Fountain, where Harry Truman had his first job.

Crisscross two overlapping battlefields, where your “driver” points out what happened there; circle the Bingham-Waggoner estate, where the artist George Caleb Bingham destroyed a general with a paint brush; pass the 1879 train depot where Frank James stepped off of the train on his way to jail; roll through the wagon swales left in the ground by pioneer wagons going west.

Other possibilities include a wedding carriage ride; school group adventures; and Santa’s sleigh. Group tours are available; a chuck wagon feast may be include.

Live an adventure with every turn of the wheel.
