Growing Up with the River


In Growing Up with the River, you will meet children from nine generations who grew up along the Missouri River from Hermann to St. Charles.  You will share in a long list of adventures and observe the changes they see in the river valley including visits from Lewis and Clark and a presidential candidate, the departure of Native Americans, the arrival of German immigrants, steamboats, trains and a TNT factory, and the the creation of the Katy Trail and Missouri’s largest conservation area.
