    I enjoy historical places and this one has character. It's in the middle off a fun area of shopping and dining.

    Loved the site when I drove by and we stop to look at it and pictures in front of it. We got great pictures

    This very tiny historic site is a great little stop along the Lewis and Clark trail. Reenactors take you back to the early 1800s and let you visit the past. Although the historic site itself is small, St. Charles Main Street is entirely historic itself and quiet adorable. It is a great destination for a little history on the state of Missouri and a visit to quaint shops in an old world setting with cobblestone streets.
