History and Preservation of Jefferson City

History and Preservation of Jefferson City

Jefferson City has a very unique distinction.  Back in 1821, the Missouri state legislature appointed a commission, which decided to create the City of Jefferson specifically to serve as the state capital.  However, it wasn’t until 1826 the general assembly moved there, as they waited for our capitol building to be constructed.  Unfortunately, it was destroyed by a fire just one year later.  A second capitol was built and construction was finished in 1840. But, once again it was destroyed by a fire in 1911 after being struck by lightning. The current capitol was built around 1915.
