Reflect on the greatness of the Mississippi River and the legacy of public schools that Gov. Daniel Dunklin left Missouri at Gov. Daniel Dunklin’s Grave State Historic Site. Perched on a bluff above the river at Herculaneum, the grave of Missouri’s fifth governor provides a quiet place to reflect on Missouri, then and now.
