Discover Our History

The Colonel George Rogers Clark statue commemorates the journey his troops made along the Vincennes Trace through Clay County in 1779.

The history of Flora intersects with the rich history of train travel, the Civil War, and life in a small mid-western town. General Lewis Baldwin Parsons settled in southern Illinois (Flora) and fundamentally changed Army standards for transportation of troupes. He was in charge of all river and rail transportation from Yellowstone to New Orleans to Pittsburg.
