A new website showcasing Ralls County is said to be the first of its kind in Missouri, according to Ralls County Historical Society President Ron Leake.

The Ralls County Heritage Driving Trail features information and locations of a number of historic sites that can be viewed on-line.  The trail takes history buffs into churches, cemeteries, mansions, a jail, and more—all part of the rich history of Ralls County.

Missouri Tourism Director Katie Steel Danner plans to drive part of the trail Friday.  Her last stop will be at the 150 year-old Ralls County Courthouse located in New London.  The courthouse is said to be the oldest courthouse in continuous operation west of the Mississippi River.
