Two hundred years since
the historic journey of the Corps of Discovery, the names Meriwether Lewis
and William Clark remain linked to one of America's most incredible adventure
stories. The summer of 1804 took the U.S. Army expedition along the northeast
corner of what is now the state of Kansas. Throughout their two-week stay
they observed native flora and fauna, disciplined unruly Corps members
and celebrated the fourth of July. We invite you to experience Lewis and
Clark heritage and rediscover Kansas for yourself.
