Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower


The new Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower is located in Hartford, Illinois, two miles from the Lewis & Clark State Historic Site, which is National Trail Site #1 on the Lewis & Clark Trail. The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower was built in commemoration of the historic expedition. The 180-foot tower has three viewing platforms at 50, 100 and 150-feet connecting the two towers that represent Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Each level of the tower tells stories about the area’s history, including the Village of Hartford, the Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway, Lewis and Clark and the confluence of two great rivers - the Mississippi and Missouri. The Tower is the gateway to the Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway, with a visitor center located in the northern tower. At the visitor center, guests can plan their trip along the 33-mile route with interactive exhibits, videos and graphic panels that tell stories of history, wildlife and communities all along the byway.
