History is coming alive at the St. Charles County Heritage Museum! The almost 3,000-square-foot exhibition, “The American Revolutionary War in the West,” features original artifacts and never-before-published documents, including the story of St. Charles County during the Colonial era and the War of 1812.
In the main museum gallery, guests will learn about the Mississippi River Valley during the war and our region’s contributions to the conflict. This part of the exhibit is based on the book The American Revolutionary War in the West by St. Louisan Stephen L. Kling, Jr., and will feature rare artifacts, original documents, uniforms, flags and interactive components. Other exhibits throughout the museum delve into the history of St. Charles County during the Colonial era and the War of 1812.
