Incorporated in 1857, the culture, character and charm of Trenton, Missouri, has been sculpted by over 160 years of history. Relics of the past — regal architecture, long-standing homes, museums and registered landmarks — can be spotted all over town. Meandering down Main Street is virtually the same today as it was for visitors decades ago. Take a peek through the storefront windows, and you’ll see an inviting collection of local shops and restaurants.
This quaint community of 6,000 is nestled amid the enchanting hills of Missouri’s Northern Plains. Having been etched and formed by glaciers passing through the region long ago, the fields from which the area got its name are bountiful and saturated with minerals. Sweeping views from the outskirts of town are blanketed by generations worth of farmland and dotted with friendly clusters of trees.
Countless outdoor adventures are within reach from the favorable location of this rural retreat. Hunters come from miles around for the region’s famed hunting, seeking their next trophy deer or banquet-worthy turkey. Crowder State Park is just minutes outside town, presenting opportunities for hiking, biking and fishing along the river that weaves through its trees. Pershing State Park is less than an hour away, and well-kept public parks are sprinkled within Trenton’s city limits.
