Inscription.

This small house was built by the men of the Marthasvile Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Committee to commemorate the stops of the Lewis and Clark Expedition at Charrette village May 25, 1804 and September 20, 1806. This French style house is on the site of the village. The village in 1804 was the frontier of westward settlement on the Missouri River. It was still that when the men of the expedition made their joyous return to it in 1806.
