Jackson County Parks + Rec is excited to present the Third Annual Discover Fort Osage! in Sibley, Missouri from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jun. 4, 2022.

The event invites guests of all ages to come discover the history of Jackson County’s first National Historic Landmark.

Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for seniors (62 and older) and children (5-13). Children 4 and under are admitted for free.

Built in 1808, under the direction of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition, Fort Osage served a dual role as both a military garrison and a trade center.

Today, authentically attired historical interpreters take visitors on a journey through Fort Osage’s past. Visitors will enjoy breathtaking views of the reconstructed historic site that overlooks the Missouri River as they learn about the daily life of military, civilian and Native American populations at Fort Osage and explore museum exhibits at the Fort Osage Education Center in Sibley, MO.
