Friends of Rocheport Historical Museum
Although its hours are a bit limited, the Friends of Rocheport Historical Museum (First and Moniteau Sts., 1–4 p.m. Sat.–Sun. May–Oct.) provides a fascinating glimpse into local history. The volunteer-staffed museum contains carefully preserved artifacts and historical documents from the town’s rich history as a former trading post and river and railroad town.
The town of Rocheport was near one of Lewis and Clark’s stops as they made their way west on their infamous early-1800s journey.
