Marthasville is a charming little settlement near the Missouri River. No veterinarians work in town, but many veterinarians can be found in nearby Washington. Any kind of veterinary service, including routine, emergency, and specialty care is just a short drive away.
Marthasville is the resting place of Daniel Boone, who lived his final days in the environs of the town. German immigrants made this place their home in the early and mid-1800s. The people of Marthasville take pride in their history. They celebrate its contribution as one of the stopping points of Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition westward.
Many small parks can be explored in this small rural space. There are a dozen green spaces set aside for a person and a leashed dog to experience. Rocky Point Park is a typical Marthasville park with walking areas near a river. Shaded park benches make Rocky Point Park a perfect place to get some fresh air with a canine friend. Island Park attracts visitors with a paved walkway that ends with a scenic overlook of the river.
Marthasville proudly provides two access points to the Katy Trail State Park. The Katy Trail is a mostly gravel and rock trail that spans 240 miles and connects ten counties. Marthasville Trailhead and Treloar Trailhead provide a marked entrance to the Katy Trail with descriptions of the trail and its historical significance.
