Candlelight Hospital Tours

Anderson House served as a hospital for Federal troops during the 1861 Battle of Lexington. Candlelight Hospital Tours are sponsored by Missouri State Parks and Missouri Medical Brigade. Experience life at a make-shift hospital. Tours feature recreated scenes of doctors performing surgeries, women tending the wounded and soldiers planning their next move.
