Eagle Days & a Special Open House January 28


Missouri is one of the leading bald eagle states. Thousands of Eagles migrate south each fall to hunt around the open waters of our rivers and lakes. More than 2,000 bald eagles are reported in Missouri regularly during winter, making our state one of the leaders in the lower 48 states. The bald eagle was formally adopted as our national emblem in 1782. In the 200 years since, its numbers suffered a great decline. However the bald eagle has recovered and it is reported that more than 7,000 nesting pairs are found in the lower 48 states. In 1995, the federal government downgraded the bald eagle’s status from endangered to threatened throughout its range. A few bald eagles usually are seen in Missouri by mid-fall but most arrive in December. In some cases, a bird will return to the same location each winter to find food in unfrozen lakes and rivers.

The Grace House located at 101 S 3rd Street, MO 63336

This property was the quaint Grace Church that looked over the town of Clarksville. It was established in 1869, but the current structure was built in 1940. The red brick building is in Georgian style, with dentil molding, a barrel roof, dual staircases leading to the front door & 5-foot porthole windows.
