(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Robidoux Row Museum hosted a "Birthday Bash" to celebrate Joseph Robidoux's 235th birthday. 

The museum gave free tours of the facility and welcomed vendors, storytellers, musical performances, and a old time-themed wagon.

Daniel Johnson, Executive Director of the Robidoux Row Museum, says the event was about letting people learn more about the city's founding.

"We want the people in the community to really see where St. Joe came from." Johnson said. "This is the oldest building we have in St. Joe, is the Robidoux Row, and so we really wanted the people in St. Joe to be able to see it's heritage."

Joseph Robidoux was born in 1783 and died at the age of 85 in 1868.

We are waking up to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures into the middle to upper 60s this Monday morning. Monday is looking to be another dry & quiet day for us with partly sunny skies skies. Showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to develop to our south near Kansas City and the I-70 corridor so we can't rule out a slim chance for a stray shower for us. Highs are going to be a few degrees below average in the lower 80s.
