DescriptionFounded in 1804, this Missouri River town is still a center for tobacco production. Tobacco grown locally is processed in warehouses that line Main Street and sold at auctions held from mid-November to February. The vintage antebellum houses and buildings here are similar in appearance to the Classical Revival and Federal-style dwellings built in the early 19th century in Virginia and Kentucky.
The McCormick Distillery, One McCormick Lane, offers tours of its facility that depart from the welcome center Mon.-Sat. 9-5, Sun. noon-5. For more information phone (816) 640-3056.
