Santa Fe National Historic Trail 200th Commemoration Official Kickoff

The Official kickoff of the 200th Commemoration of the Santa Fe National Historic Trail is a day-long commemoration in Arrow Rock MO on September 1, 2021—two-hundred years since William Becknell left Franklin, MO for Santa Fe, NM, opening the United States first international highway of commerce and trade. Programs and re-enactors will be participating throughout Arrow Rock all day long.  A complete list of the day’s events will be posted on as they are developed. The event is jointly sponsored by the Missouri River Outfitters Chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association, the Friends of Arrow Rock, Missouri DNR, and the Village of Arrow Rock.
