The War of 1812 Exhibit is at the Bissell House. The War of 1812, is often referred to as the second American Revolution. On June 18, 1812, the US declared war on the British Empire.

About the Truman Park-St. Stanislaus Connector Trail in the Missouri River Greenway
Great Rivers Greenway worked with the City of Hazelwood to develop a one-mile trail from the fishing lake at Truman Park northward through a mostly shady area. Ultimately this trail will connect the City of Hazelwood to the Missouri River Greenway at St. Stanislaus Conservation Area. The project included a bridge over Aubuchon Creek.

Status
The first phase of the trail, which begins at the north end of Truman Park, is complete. The second phase, funded mostly by the City of Hazelwood, will consist of a link from St. Stanislaus Conservation Area on the Missouri River southward toward Truman Park. Construction is expected to begin soon.

City of Hazelwood and Missouri Department of Conservation
