Jefferson Landing

Hi! After that last post, I wanted to provide a few snapshots of the historic buildings I mentioned. These are part of the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site, administrated by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

First: the Christopher Maus house, which I referred to lovingly in the last post as the "mouse house." Note the Governor's Mansion lurking in the background.

Next is a view of the Union Hotel, which was owned by Charles Maus, Christopher's brother.

Finally, another view of the Union Hotel (the view you would see coming in on Amtrak, as this side faces the rails). The stone Lohman Building is in the background.
