The Henry County Museum is located just west of Missouri's largest downtown square at 203 West Franklin Street.
The main museum building is the historic Anheuser-Busch building constructed in 1886 as an office and distribution center. The Museum's Collection includes artifacts of local origin, the Courtenay Thomas Collection of rare world antiques, and the paintings of artist Louis Freund.
The Adair Annex houses the museum's art gallery, the geneology library, and an authentic reproduction of a turn-of-the-century village.
The Homestead area, across the street from the main building and Adair Annex, features an original 1856 Dog Trot Log House which was painstakingly preserved and moved to the present location. A barn, corn crib, smoke house, and outhouse complete this 1800's farmstead.
The DeLozier Building, on the corner of Washington and Franklin, was built in 1887 as the Henry County Bank, and has been restored to its original Victorian grandeur and now serves as a performing arts center and meeting facility.
For some more details and pictures, see the Historic Sites Page at the Clinton Main Street web site.
