Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 21, 1965):
From 1837 to 1845, this was the residence of George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879), American portrait and landscape painter. Bingham preserved with realism human characteristic scenes of old-time Missouri life. It was during his years at Arrow Rock that he began his sketches of the Missouri River and frontier life around him that developed into his famous "genre" paintings.

Condition:
There are no threats at this time.

There are no changes since the last report. (2004)
