Falls of the Ohio State Park will host “Reimagining America: The Maps of Lewis and Clark” at its Interpretive Center through Jan. 31.

Reimagining America is a traveling exhibit designed to help visitors understand how information-gathering and mapping by the 1803-1806 Lewis and Clark Expedition created a new portrait of the United States that led to the nation’s western expansion.

The exhibit consists of 16 panels, each 7-feet tall and 3-feet wide, extending 60 feet. It covers topics such as the sources Lewis and Clark consulted to make their maps as well as the tools they used in their production.

The Interpretive Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. Parking is $2, and admission is $9 for ages 12 and older, $7 for children 5 to 11, and children 5 and under are free.

Reimagining America was created by the national nonprofit Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation to increase awareness of the story of the nation’s geographic understanding of itself and the different cultural viewpoints and strategies that enabled Lewis and Clark to map and share their data.
