Long Description:
The River Gnome is on the corner of North Central Street and 1st Street near the Katy State Park Walking Trail. It's about 1400 feet from the banks of the Missouri River and about 600 feet from the Moniteau Creek.

The Flood of 1993 was the worst here since 1844 when water reached the second floor of many downtown buildings. The majority of Rocheport is well above the Missouri River Floodplain and in 1993, flooding only covered the Katy Trail.
