HISTORIC CITY OF JEFFERSON

Founded in 1983 Historic City of Jefferson is a non-profit located in Jefferson City, Missouri with the goal of preserving the historic buildings of Missouri's capital city.
Over the years we've expanded our scope to include the preservation of the city's history and tell the stories of the people that have played a role in its past. We know that as the state capital,
our city is the state's history and we want to share it with you!
