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





From the President…

The Historic City of Jefferson has come a long way in 36 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!  


St. Mary’s Hospital Time Capsule

The time capsule from 1904 has been recovered from the old St. Mary’s Hospital building and was donated to HCJ by the Farmers Group.  Thank you to everyone that attended the first public viewing on February 10.  Check our calendar in the coming weeks for dates when the time capsule contents will be displayed again.
