This historic site encompasses the grounds of what was once the Confederate Home of Missouri, which housed dependent Confederate veterans and their families. The last Confederate veteran living at the home died there in 1950 at the age of 108. In 1957, the Missouri General Assembly established this site as a permanent memorial to those soldiers. It includes the historic restored chapel, the cemetery where more than 679 Confederate veterans are buried, and a park landscape that features picnic sites and several small fishing lakes. Located one mile north of Higginsville.
