Welcome to Northwest Missouri

A gateway to the American West in centuries past, visit Northwest Missouri and immerse yourself in the region’s unique and amazing story! Start your trip in St. Joseph at the Pony Express Museum, to learn about the United States’ historic fast horse based postal service, that left from St Joseph and sped across the west to Sacramento, CA. Another spectacle to see in St. Joseph is the Jesse James Home, a museum dedicated to the life and death of Jesse James, one of America’s most well known Old West figures and outlaw! Enjoy the scenic view of more than 1,300 trees and their amazing array of colors at the State of Missouri Arboretum on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University. With easy access from the greater Kansas City area, take some time and enjoy the Northwest!
