LCTHF 51st Annual Meeting


Please join us this September in St. Louis...

Our meeting will be held during the 213th anniversary of the return of the expedition party to St. Louis. We will commemorate the incorporation of the LCTHF, examine how the tellling of the Lewis and Clark story has changed over time, discuss current scholarship within the field, learn about legacy projects, and participate in activities and panels about what it means to be "Keepers of the Story and Stewards of the Trail."

Noted scholar John Logan Allen will deliver the second annual Moulton Lecture on Sunday, September 22, 2019. Registrants will visit the new museum exhibits at the Gateway Arch and learn about the background research from the curator and historian. Attendees will have a behind-the-scenes experience with Lewis and Clark artifacts at the Missouri Historical Society. We will revisit "Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes" with Indigenous scholars more than a decade after its groundbreaking publication. An exclusive chartered river cruise will take participants to the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, passing through the massive Mississippi lock system on this fascinating opportunity to understand changes to the river system since the time of Lewis and Clark.

The final afternoon, attendees will choose one of the three special tours: 1) an historical tour of Bellefontaine and Calvary Cemetaries that will include visits to William Clark's grave and the Nez Perce Warriors monument; 2) a visit to historic St. Charles (celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2019 with fiberglass replicas of Newfoundlands throughout the city) plus the Lewis and Clark Boat and Nature Center; or 3) a tour of Illinois Lewis and Clark sites including Campsite #1, the museum, and the Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower (completed in 2010).

We will be honoring individuals and organizations, past and present, that have worked together to make the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation what it is today.

Optional pre-and post- tours will be available.

Optional Tours: (additional cost)

A pre-conference walking tour of the St. Louis riverfront will be offered on Saturday afternoon by NPS historian Bob Moore.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about the St. Louis of Lewis and Clark. Archeologist Michael Meyer will also be there to talk about his work with French colonial era artifacts and the remnants of vertical log houses. 

Two post-conference day tours are being offered.  One to the recently designated Ste. Genevieve National Historic Park where participants will tour vertical log homes from the period.  The second tour is a behind the scenes look at Jerry Garrett’s St. Louis.  (This one is not Lewis and Clark focused but is a unique opportunity to see St. Louis through Jerry’s perspective.)
