When George Rogers Clark struck north from the Falls of the Ohio in 1778, he plunged head-first into a century of Native and European diplomacy, trade, exchange, and settlement. Touring the intersection of the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys, we connect Kentucky to ancient Cahokia, Parisian palaces, Great Plains fur camps, and Havana barrios. At no time until the present was our region as linguistically, spiritually, and culturally diverse as it was on the eve of American Independence. Visit colonial Ft. de Chartres, Ste. Genevieve, St. Charles, Cahokia, and Vincennes and meet local experts, architectural historians, artisans, and curators who keep the memory of this global crossroads alive.

The price of the trip includes transportation, admission to all museums and historical sites, two dinners with guest speakers, and two lunches. Participants are responsible for covering the costs of overnight accommodations at special group rate hotels and one lunch (totaling approximately $300). The tour will be visiting sites that require lots of walking and some stairs, please take this under consideration before purchasing tickets.
