Kick off the holiday season with the annual HCJ Holiday Reception. This year’s event will feature local historian and author Michelle Brooks as the guest speaker.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy hot cocoa, cookies, and conversation while bidding on unique JCMO items and experiences in our holiday auction. The auction goes live online Thursday, November 18th at 6:00 p.m. and concludes at the event on December 2. It’s a great way to pick up some special holiday gifts such as a private tour for up to 10 of the historic state capitol building led by historian Bob Priddy and many more!

HCJ Receives $5,000 Grant from National Trust for Historic Preservation

In April 2021, the National Trust for Historic Preservation awarded a $5,000 grant to Historic City of Jefferson. This is the first grant HCJ has received from the NTHP. With the funding, HCJ will digitize all of the files in its collection and make these available online. This will ensure anyone, anywhere is able to learn about the historic buildings in Missouri’s state capitol!

We need your help now! As part of the grant, HCJ must raise matching funds. We have a goal of raising $5,000 within the next three months. Please help us reach our goal by making a donation today.

You can click the “Become a Member” tab at the top right of the page and then select the “Donation” button halfway down.

You can also mail a check to: HCJ, PO Box 105056, Jefferson City, MO 65110.

If you would prefer to donate your time instead, we need help digitizing the items in our library. Staff are available to show you the process and help along the way. 

If you would like to volunteer or have questions about the grant, please contact Anne Green (HCJ Executive Director) at hcjexec@gmail.com.
