Lewis & Clark Expedition
— 1803-1806 —Cahokia was Lewis and Clark's host community for much of their six month stay in Illinois. Meriwether Lewis was often found in Cahokia on expedition business through the winter of 1803-04. During this important period of preparation, Lewis spent considerable time at Cahokia Courthouse, the political and communications center of the region, and at Holy Family Parish Church, the community's religious and social center.
