Step back in time -- back to when Missouri was way out West in the wilderness -- and experience the lives of the men and women who secured the American frontier.

Built in 1808, under the direction of William Clark, co-leader of the Lewis & Clark expedition, the Fort served a dual role. It was both a military garrison and trade center.

Overlooking the Missouri River, this historic site has been reconstructed to portray Fort Osage as it was in 1812. Authentically attired interpreters provide living-history insights into the daily life of both the military and civilian populations.
