These 17 Old Restaurants In Missouri Have Stood The Test Of Time
According to The State Historical Society of Missouri, the oldest restaurant in Missouri is in the historic mall town of Arrow Rock. In fact, it is the oldest continuously serving restaurant west of the Mississippi River. J. Huston Tavern was originally the two-story home of the Huston family, built in 1834. Arrow Rock became a popular stopping spot for settlers heading west, so Huston began offering lodging and meals to travelers and local citizens.
