Our organization helps provide period appropriate workshops, events, music, contra-dancing, and interpretive narravites for cooking, carpentry, gardening, blacksmithing, and fiber crafts.


Missouri Town itself is located on a 65 acre plot in Fleming park located in Eastern Jackson County, Missouri.  It consists of 25 period appropriate structures and is actively supported throughout the year by volunteers.
