It's Missouri's birthday and you're invited! Come help celebrate the 198th anniversary of Missouri becoming the 24th state. The First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site will host the fun festivities. The public is invited to view the buildings where our first legislators and senators met from 1821-1826 to go about the business of organizing a new state. Interpreters will entertain visitors with fun state trivia, tales of our road to statehood, provide information and displays on our state symbols and conduct historic demonstrations during the celebrations. Make sure you don't miss the birthday cake and refreshing lemonade.
