The Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower is a modern design memorial celebrating the Bicentennial (1804-2004) of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The Tower consists of 2 concrete "legs", one housing an elevator, the other a staircase, and 3 observation decks placed at 50 feet, 100 feet and 150 feet above the ground. The viewing decks give a 360 degree view of the Hartford area, including the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. The Confluence Bike Trail runs directly below the towers.
The Tower is open daily. A fee is charged for a tour up to the viewing decks. All tours are subject to the weather and wind conditions. There is a gift shop, as well.
