The Friends of Arrow Rock was established in 1959 by a visionary group of people who believed Arrow Rock’s rich history and 19th-century structures were treasures worth preserving.
More than 50 years have passed since the organization’s founding, but the members’ commitment to sharing the stories of Arrow Rock and maintaining its architectural assets has never wavered. Today’s Arrow Rock is one of the premier tourist attractions in Missouri, thriving with restaurants, museums, shops, B&Bs, hiking trails and a professional theater. Tens of thousands of visitors come to Arrow Rock each year to see one of the most remarkable historic towns in the United States, and that’s due in no small part to the ongoing work of the Friends of Arrow Rock.
We invite you to explore this site to learn more about Arrow Rock’s history and buildings, upcoming events, and Friends of Arrow Rock membership opportunities.
