Known as the gateway to the West and nicknamed the Show Me State, Missouri is bordered by two great rivers: Mississippi on its eastern border and Missouri River for a portion of its western border. As a result, Missouri is ideally located as a hub of transportation and trade.
Statehood came as part of the Missouri Compromise allowing Maine to enter the union as a free state and Missouri to enter with no restrictions on slavery. During the Civil War, Missouri was divided and sent men to fight for both the north and the south.
The state boasts many cultural attractions from riverboat cruises to music festivals and tours of the largest brewing company in the nation. With a rich history and interesting people, Missouri became a stopping point for many migrating west. Some stayed, others moved on, some returned east. Some of those names you might recognize. Daniel Boone, Laura Ingles Wilder, Kit Carson, William Clark, Walt Disney, Scott Joplin, and Joseph Pulitzer all made Missouri their home for a time.
