Number 15 on the walking tour of Arrow Rock, Missouri is the Dr. Matthew Hall House. Dated 1846, it is nearing 172 years old.
Arrow Rock was established in 1829.
The description in the self-guided tour of Dr. Hall’s influence on this town’s history is stated as saying:
15 Dr. Mathew Hall House,1846|Dr. Hall was a noted civic leader and community physician. In 1856, he moved his family to the country to escape “the evil influence of a river town.”– MDNR To see more of this guide, click here.
It must have been a rough place to reside at some point. Hard to imagine now.
For me, this town represents much of a ‘frontier-era Missouri’. It sits along the path taken by Lewis and Clark on their famous Expedition.
I’ve been posting on this town several Thursdays now and I think it’s time to let it go with a slide show of extras. If you happen to be driving down I-70 in central Missouri though, I highly recommend taking the exit to Arrow Rock to see this River Town time capsule. It’s not a tourist trap and comes with a very scenic drive along the way. A real gem!
