The Friends of Arrow Rock, Inc., present the First Saturday Lecture Series at Arrow Rock State Historic Site:

May 6, 10 a.m.-noon: “Secrets of a Preservationist” This lecture will be presented by Friends of Arrow Rock properties manager Marty Selby and executive director Sandy Selby. The presentation will share some tricks of the preservationists’ trade that people can use in their own homes – new or old. A tour of the Friends of Arrow Rock’s recently completed preservation project of the Sites’ house and gun shop and the I.O.O.F. Lodge Hall and Print Shop will follow. The lecture and tour are free and open to the public.

June 3, 10 a.m.-11 a.m.: 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.
