The Cloverdale archaeological site (23BN2) is an archaeological site located near St. Joseph, Missouri. It is situated at the mouth of a small valley that opens into the Missouri River.

It was occupied by Kansas City Hopewell (c. 100 to 500 CE) peoples, and later by Mississippian influenced Steed-Kisker peoples (c. 1200).

Because of the many Cahokia style projectile points found at the site, it is believed to have been a trade partner or outpost of the much larger Cahokia polity.[1]
