On the Move
A History of Transportation in St. Charles County
This exhibit is about people on the move.
It’s a story of the rivers, roads, and railroads that have, for decades or even centuries, made travel around the county possible.
It’s about the ways that geography influenced transportation routes, and how transportation still influences where people live and work. It explores how travel affects interaction with the “outside” world.
As this story moves through time, it highlights changes in technology that made movement easier and faster, and shows how transportation reshuffled the social and commercial life of St. Charles County.
