Six blocks West of the Missouri River
, Crooked Tree Coffee House serves everything espresso and coffee. A full breakfast menu and fresh pastry selection is available daily.
Located just a block away from the Missouri River
, one of the must-see historical sites to visit in St. Charles, this building housed Missouri's first state government from 1821 until 1826, before Jefferson City became the capital. Governmental chambers, a residence, the governor's office and a dry goods store have been restored.
St. Charles played an important role in the journey of Lewis and Clark, so naturally, there are historical sites to visit in their honor, including the Boat House, Museum and Nature Center. This educational facility has exhibits on the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the Missouri River
ecosystem. Something for all ages. The museum houses full-size replicas of the keelboat and pirogues used by Lewis and Clark. There is a bookstore and gift shop. School field trips and bus tours are welcome.
