Fort Osage

On the first exploration to the Pacific in 1804 Lewis and Clark named this site Fort Point and in 1808 William Clark returned to build a fortified post to win the Indians from Spanish and British influence. It was operated by the United States until 1822.

Fort Osage played an active and important part in the earliest development of the Louisiana Purchase by the Missouri River and Rocky Mountain fur trade and the plains trade with Mexico.
