On September 15, 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark returning from the Pacific, stood on this point and recorded in their journal that this was a commanding situation for a fort and that from the top of the hill you have a perfect command of the river. Here there men shot an elk and gathered custard apples or pawpaws.

June 26-29, 1804, on the westward journey they camped at the mouth of the Kansas.
