Lewis County Museum of Natural History
Lewis County Museum of Natural History

After visiting the site of Meriwether Lewis’ death and monument that marks his grave, drive into the downtown area to visit the Lewis County Museum of Natural History. The exhibit on Meriwether Lewis includes the key to the cabin where he died. Exhibits on early American Settlement, the Civil War, and Gordonsburg mining will give you a better understanding of what you will see in Lewis County.  The museum also contains one of the largest collections of wild game trophies in the western hemisphere. The recorded voices of Dan and Margaret Maddox, who acquired the collection over half a century, guide you through the exhibits.
Few other places have such a diverse mix of sites all packed into a small area-an Amish and Mennonite settlement and General Store, home to two wineries along the Natchez Trace Wine Trail, working Alpaca and horse farms, a 1960’s commune, antique shops with small town prices, unique clothing and gift stores, specialty restaurants, horseback riding trails, even the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge developed specifically for endangered African and Asian elephants.
