HISTORIC WESTON, MISSOURI: THE WESTON BREWING COMPANY (1166 words)
Located along the Missouri River in the northwestern part of the state, what is now Weston Bend State Park is covered in a thick, rich loess soil.
While much of the surrounding landscape in northwest Missouri originally consisted of prairie and widely scattered trees, the vicinity of the present-day park was covered mostly by forest interspersed with a few hilltop prairies along the bluffs of the river.
The ravines and rich valleys contained elm, hackberry, sugar maple, basswood, and walnut while the drier upland hills were inhabited by bur oak, fl oak, white oak, and hickories.
