This Is What Missouri Looked Like 100 Years Ago…It May Surprise You

Missouri has a rich history, and works to preserve it. There are more than 2,000 places in Missouri that are listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. In addition, one of the greatest ways to preserve Missouri history is through photographs. From the buildings and streets to the people and events, here’s the way it looked a century ago. All pictures are from between 1896 and 1915.

What do you think of these historical photos?   Do you have any family pictures from this time period you would like to share?  Any stories about the images that were shared? Let me know in the comments below.
