Hartford

Located at the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, Hartford is where things come together. That’s not just true of the rivers – the tower overlooking the rivers is called the Confluence Tower – but it was also the site of Camp Dubois, where explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark camped in 1803-1804. The site is commemorated today by the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site, a 14,000-square-foot museum and exhibit space. Hartford is also the beginning of the 33-mile Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway, one of the most beautiful and scenic drives the country has to offer.
