Once a thriving river port, the town is dotted with architectural treasures from the past. Limestone gutters of carefully carved blocks line the main street, marking the toil of earlier generations. Wooden sidewalks and overhead canopies still line store fronts, recalling the grace and aura of times long past.

The entire town of Arrow Rock was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964. An integral part of this historic town is Arrow Rock State Historic Site. The site's visitor center museum features exhibits that tell about Arrow Rock and the historic "Boone's Lick Country."

The Bingham Home, built by Missouri's preeminent artist of the 1800s, George Caleb Bingham, has been restored and furnished as it might have been when he lived there. The Huston Tavern, dating back to 1834, stands ready to serve you its traditional hearty fare. The old courthouse, a town doctor's home, a stone jail and other historic buildings are part of a walking tour offered at the site.
