Since the early 1800s, when Lewis and Clark took their first steps in the Louisiana Purchase and Abraham Bird settled at Bird’s Point in 1803, the area that would become Mississippi County has been a center for both agriculture and business, beautiful homes and rich traditions, a place where people are known for hard work, steadfast faith and family values.
Remember When…A Pictorial History of Mississippi County, Missouri celebrates life in the Missouri Bootheel and the special breed of people who call it home, with over 1,200 photographs of all walks of life, including agriculture, buildings and homes, businesses, churches, schools, sporting events, Mother Nature, people and families, and much more. Scenes from across the county are featured, from Wolf Island, to East Prairie, to Charleston, and all points in between.
Featuring photographs from the extensive collection of the Mississippi County Historical Society Museum, this book also includes many never-before-published photographs from private family collections across the county and beyond.
