Missouri is boarded by eight states (tired for the most with Tennessee): Iowa to the north, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee to the east. Arkansas to the south and Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska to the West.
For at least 12,000 years, humans have lived in what is now Missouri. The Mississippian culture, which arose in the ninth century and lasted until the 14th century, created towns and mounds. The Osage and Missouria nations were visited by European explorers in the 17th century. The land was brought into Louisiana by the French, who founded Ste. Genevieve in 1735 and St. Louis in 1764. Missouri was purchased by the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase, after a brief period of Spanish sovereignty.
As the Gateway Arch commemorates, Missouri played a pivotal part in the United States’ westward expansion. Missouri was the starting point for the Pony Express, Oregon Trail, Santa Fe Trail, and California Trail.
