From the Executive Director

The Historic City of Jefferson has come a long way in 37 years – and we are still growing stronger in efforts to educate about Jefferson City past, and in preservation efforts of significant buildings and neighborhoods.  If you are not a member, please consider joining today.

Please note that in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the HCJ offices will be closed until further notice. However, please know that although it’s not business-as-usual for us, it’s still our usual business–we are just conducting it from our homes during this time period. We are posting regular updates on our social media pages so please follow us on Facebook @HCJInc and Instagram @historiccityofjefferson.

You can reach me directly at any time at 573.690.4225 or by email at

We look forward to the time when our members can come together again and celebrate our beautiful historic city!

HCJ Mission: To proactively preserve our historic resources and create an environment that makes preservation a viable focus for the future of Jefferson City.
