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.
