MISSOURI 2021 MISSION

The mission of Missouri 2021 is to promote a better understanding of Missouri and its regions, communities, and people, both past and present. The Missouri Bicentennial provides opportunities for citizens to celebrate, explore, and share perspectives on the state’s rich history and culture.

HISTORY

How did the State Historical Society of Missouri become charged with leading the Missouri 2021 Bicentennial Celebrations?

The 97th Missouri General Assembly, during its First Regular Session in 2013, issued House Concurrent Resolution 7 (HCR7). It tasked the State Historical Society of Missouri with developing "plans, ideas, and proposals to commemorate and celebrate" the Missouri Bicentennial and providing "guidance and direction to a statewide effort to promote and celebrate the State of Missouri’s rich and complex history."
