The Oldest Restaurant In Missouri Has A Truly Captivating History
J. Huston Tavern in Arrow Rock is certainly the oldest restaurant in Missouri, but its restaurant is just a part of all the rich history you can find in this town. The tavern is considered a part of the nationally registered Arrow Rock State Historic Site, which garnered that credit due to the town being a popular rest stop along the Santa Fe Trail.
