Up and ComingFEB. 7: First Saturday Lecture & Chili Luncheon!
“America Unfinished: Abraham Lincoln in 1865” is the topic of the Friends of Arrow Rock’s First Saturday Lecture, 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 7, at the Arrow Rock State Historic Site Visitor Center. In February 1865, the Civil War was nearly done — “We can now see to the bottom,” Lincoln said. But Lincoln’s work was “unfinished,” and Lincoln knew that America was “unfinished.” He understood that a people dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal” would have “unfinished” work, always. Hundley will explore this theme at the Feb. 7 lecture.
Following the lecture, at 11:30 at the Old Schoolhouse on the west end of Main Street, the Arrow Rock Cooperative Marketing Committee will host a chili luncheon fundraiser. For just $7, you'll enjoy an all-you-can eat feast of chili, cornbread and a drink. Homemade desserts are available for a small additional charge.

George Caleb Bingham House,
1837 | One of America’s great 19th century artists, Bingham is famous for his portraits and scenes of river life and politics. He built this Federal style house in Arrow Rock and lived here intermittently through the 1840s. Fortunately for us, in an age before photography existed, George Caleb Bingham recorded for us the images of his Missouri.
