TitleFort Osage
AbstractLarge color photos and article about the restoration (reconstruction) of Fort Osage in northeastern Jackson County, Missouri, from the 1940s to the 1970s, directed by "archaeologist J. W. Hendron." History of the fort built in 1808 (with the help of Nathan Boone) near present-day Sibley, Missouri, with the site selected in 1804 by William Clark during the Lewis and Clark expedition. Abandoned in 1827 with the opening of Jackson County for settlement and completely gone by 1833 for use in building homes, "apparently."
