The St. Charles County Heritage Museum in St. Charles has temporarily closed its doors, but the public can look forward to a big celebration when it reopens with a new and exciting exhibit, “The American Revolutionary War in the West.” Scheduled to debut on May 21, this will be the first time the exhibit has ever been on display.
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 Revolution 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.
Join St. Charles County Parks for a grand reopening of the museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 21. This is a free, family-friendly event featuring giveaways to the first 500 guests; museum tours; living history demonstrations; book purchases and signing by author Stephen L. Kling, Jr.; special speakers; food trucks; and more! Follow the Heritage Museum on Facebook for more information and updates.
