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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
