Site of Fort Belle Fontaine, first U.S. military installation west of the Mississippi River and a stopover point for expeditions heading west. On their return trip to St. Louis in 1806, Lewis & Clark spent a night at the fort. The fort is gone, its site covered by shifts in the Missouri River, but interpretive signs explain the site's significance. FREE.
