The Missouri Historical Society (MHS) seeks to deepen the understanding of past choices, present circumstances, and future possibilities; strengthen the bonds of the community; and facilitate solutions to common problems. The MHS has been active in the St. Louis community since 1866. Founding members organized the historical society for the purpose of saving from oblivion the early history of the city and state. Today, the MHS operates the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park and the Library and Research Center. The MHS offers programs and outreach services, including traveling exhibitions, tours, theatrical and musical presentations, programs for school classes and youth groups, family festivals, special events, workshops, and lectures.
