Welcome To Historic

Weston, Missouri

Weston has a rich history as the Queen of the Platte Purchase. It was a significant nineteenth century Missouri River port community, docking as many as 265 steamboats each year at the Port of Weston. Its commerce was built on whiskey and tobacco and in the mid-1800s the population soared to 5,000, surpassing both Kansas City and St. Joseph. But the town’s progress would ultimately be slowed by major fires and the floods that altered the course of Missouri River.

Since 1972, much of this beautiful town has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. From the early antebellum homes to commercial structures that were built prior to the Civil War, many of these historic buildings now house local businesses including home furnishings, antiques shops, and fine restaurants.

A visit to Weston offers a wide range of cultural experiences, including museums, walking tours, and a historic shopping district. The town has been voted the “Best Day Trip” in Missouri for many years running and is home to numerous festivals including the famed Weston Applefest Celebration in the fall.
