Missouri’s First State Capitol


Today we went back to St. Charles and toured Missouri’s first state capitol building.  The picture above is the street view and is actually the backside of the building as all buildings in the area actually faced the Missouri River.  Here’s a picture of the front.004

It was a great tour.  They have done an amazing job preserving everything from 1820.  Claire felt a little stifled, as she was unable to run around or touch things; but she managed just fine.

I didn’t take any pictures inside.  I should have, but I was just too busy looking things over.

I highly recommend a visit to St. Charles if you’re ever in the St. Louis area.
