Museum open: 5 p.m.-9 p.m.; Program: 7 p.m.

Missouri’s distinctive borders follow rivers and man-made boundaries. The acquisition of two unique features —  the Bootheel and the Platte Purchae — have an interesting backstory.

Local historian Henry Gensky will tell the story of John H. Walker and Sen. Lewis Linn, who helped form our state’s crooked borders. The program will be held in the Missouri State Museum's History Hall, located in the east wing of the Missouri State Capitol.

The program continues the museum's ongoing series, "Museum After Hours," held the first Wednesday of each month. In addition to the program, the museum's galleries will be open until 9 p.m.
