The Boone’s Lick Road Association is holding its 10th Annual Meeting at the end of the road!  On October 30, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. we will come together at the Arrow Rock State Historic, 39521 Visitor Center Drive where Site Administrator Michael Dickey will talk about “The Origin and Description of the Boonslick Country.” He has long been involved in historical research and interpretation of cultural themes of this historically significant central Missouri region.
Note that lunch will be available at the nearby J. Huston Tavern prior to the Annual Meeting. Please contact President Dorris Keeven-Franke at if you will be joining us for lunch.
The “Boonslick Country” of central Missouri in the early 19th century was the most fertile and populous area of the state. From 1821 to 1861, this region dominated Missouri’s agricultural production, economy and its politics. The Marmadukes and their Sappington and Jackson relatives of Saline County near Arrow Rock, constituted a powerful family political dynasty. The patriarch of this family dynasty was Dr. John Sappington, an American physician known for developing a quinine pill to treat malarial and other fever diseases in the Missouri and Mississippi valleys, where the disease was widespread.
The Boone’s Lick Road Association is a Missouri 501.C3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and history of Missouri’s first road, the Boone’s Lick Road. The road begins in St. .Charles County, and then crosses Warren, Montgomery, Callaway, Boone before ending in Howard County in Franklin. New Franklin is the site of the beginning of the Sante Fe Trail. Please plan on joining us for an interesting afternoon on the road.
