About Our Chapter

For the last 25 years, the Gateway Chapter of OCTA has been active in preserving and marking the St. Joe Road with carsonite trail posts as well as several interpretive signs in St. Joseph and Northeast Kansas.  At least two field trips a year, open to the public, are held to view sites along the overland trails in our area.

The Gateway Chapter's area of responsibility, which stretches from St. Joseph, MO to Marysville, KS, is shown in the center of the map below with a bold black trail.
