Overview

History comes alive throughout the city of St. Joe. Once a thriving trade stop and the starting point of the Pony Express, the town has held firm to its roots. Fascinating historical sites and museums commemorate the generations of folks who have made the area their home. It’s hard to even go a few feet in the city without coming across a historical marker that recounts an extraordinary story.

With 13 museums and many more sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, St. Joseph is a “historical experience” unlike any other. As the original place “where the west officially started getting wild”, St. Jo paved the way for the development of the western half of the country. Learn about our role in westward expansion through the many interactive exhibits on display.
