This website is being developed by volunteers from the Cooper County Historical Society, County residents, and volunteers from other historical groups from the Boonslick area. Our goal is to preserve as much of Cooper County’s early history as possible - online, in one place, for future generations.
Other Historical groups that have contributed to this website are: Friends of Historic Boonville, River, Rails & Trails Museum, South Howard County Historical Society, Boonslick Historical Society, Arrow Rock State Historic Site, and the Boonslick Road Association. Each of these groups has the goal of preserving the area’s history, but each has a different focus on what is collected – yet each group preserves several different areas of information. We complement each other’s historical research and resources very well.
