    We arrived too late to catch the tour of the interior of the home, but the grounds themselves are lovely and worth a stop. In addition to the home, there is also a schoolhouse structure on the site serves as a nice mini-museum.

    General Pershing's boyhood home offers a rich history to one of America's most prominent generals who is also a native of Missouri! Also take the time to stop in at Pershing state park which features hiking and a great picnic area!
