Boonville Where Past & Present Meet

Nestled high atop wooded bluffs overlooking the Missouri river sits Boonville, Missouri, a beautiful city with a unique story to tell. Combining small-town charm and hospitality with a lively cultural scene, rich history and stunning natural beauty, Boonville offers an unexpected experience that will have you coming back for more.

In Boonville we are proud to preserve, celebrate, and recognize our history — including two civil war battles, two occupations and the once thriving river trade of the 1820’s and 30’s. In fact, we boast over 450 sites and structures on the National Registry of Historic Places — some of them dating back to the very early 1800’s. You can unearth our rich history by discovering historic markers throughout the town that point out various Civil War, Lewis and Clark, and Santa Fe Trail landmarks, as well as other significant points of interest.

However our present is equally as alluring as our past. From the Budweiser Clydesdales at Warm Springs Ranch and golfing at Hail Ridge, to the new Mitchell Antique Motorcar Museum and shopping around town, there is no shortage of things to see and do. For an action packed evening head to the Isle of Capri Casino to play the slots and the hottest table games, or visit one of our parks and spend some time in the great outdoors. Running through our quaint town is the nationally acclaimed 237-mile Katy Trail State Park, a must-see destination for biking and outdoor enthusiasts or those hoping to experience Missouri’s spectacular fall foliage or winter wonderland.

Discover for yourself why Boonville was awarded one of the Top 20 Best Small Towns in America in 2015.
