History of the
Marketplace and St. James

History Room

Timeline of St. James

Timeline of St. James Marketplace

St. James Marketplace is located in a school, which is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It includes a farmers market/hand made craft area and history room.
St. James, located 1/4 mi North of Scenic Highway 12, is 4 mi on scenic road from Missouri River and Goat Island where Pvt. George Shannon was lost on the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Come to our area and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
We offer tours of the marketplace, showing off our pioneer history. Along the Lewis & Clark Trail,
you will be sure to learn more about the
Corps of Discovery and the Shannon Trail.



Road Construction Directions

Highway 12 is under construction for the years 2017 and 2018.
In 2017, the bridge just west of the St. James spur will be replaced.
The electronic signs on Highway 12 will say "ROAD CLOSED".
You will still be able to drive Highway 12, but you will not be able to cross the bridge at Bow Creek west of the St. James spur.
If you are driving from the west, stay on highway 12 until the Wynot spur.
At spur, turn left going north, then at first gravel road, turn right going east.
Follow the road until you reach the Marketplace.
If you are driving from the east, stay on Highway 12 until the St. James spur and turn right.

Please watch for our signs.

Located 1 1/4 miles east of Wynot Spur on Hwy 12 & 1/4 mile north. From Vermillion/Newcastle bridge on Hwy 12, drive 12 miles west to St. James turnoff. Watch for our signs.
