Missouri Town 1855

Missouri Town 1855

Student groups pining for an ”old time” Heartland experience will truly enjoy a visit to Missouri Town, 1855. This wonderfully recreated progressive farming community in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, established on 30 green, sloping acres is an assemblage of more than 25 original buildings, dating from 1820 to 1860; of-the-day equipment and furnishings lend an air of authenticity to the careful depiction of a 19th century rural lifestyle, with historians in period dress treating visitors to “a day in country life” in 1855 Missouri – replete with a church, mercantile, schoolhouse, lawyer’s office, blacksmith, graveyard, homes and authentic field and farm crops as well as examples of rare livestock breeds that would have been commonplace in coops, barnyards and pastures almost 160 years ago.

This landmark attraction regularly hosts popular seasonal events and festivals featuring games and traditions of yesteryear, as well as richly educational and entertaining workshops-when planning your Show Me State excursion, be sure to check with your travel team to see what’s happening in 1855!
