Lewis and Clark visited Cape Girardeau in November of 1803 and Meriwether Lewis visited Cape Girardeau's founder, Louis Lorimier, at his home "The Red House." The nationally recognized Red House Interpretive Center commemorates this visit and also houses an early 1800's exhibit which reflects the lives of the early settlers of the "Old Cape Girardeau District. The Center also features a representation of the Louis Lorimier Trading Post and displays authentic items which would have been sold during the early 1800's. Visitors will see the river as it may have looked in 1803 thru the eyes of an artist -- a 250' river mural is the backdrop for the Center. They will also enjoy the gardens surrounding the Red House which feature herbs and flowers which may have been grown in 1803.
A gift shop is also available with items such as copies of the Lewis and Clark journal written for November 23, 1803, books about the expedition, the Stephen Ambrose book, Undaunted Courage, Red House Postcards, and Red House note cards, handmade historical items, and historically related toys, tools, and other items.
