This restored Federal Style rowhouse is where Missouri's first legislators met to reorganize the territorial government into a system of state government.

Highlights include governmental chambers, two residences, a dry goods store, and a carpenter shop, which have been restored to their appearance, circa 1820-30. A visitor center with exhibits and guided tours of the site are available. Located on Main Street in St Charles.
