The region now known as Jefferson City, Missouri was once home to a people called the “Mound People”. Visitors to Jefferson City can still see some of the pyramid like mounds that were built by these inhabitants. After the “Mound People” were gone, the Osage Indians lived in the area, and they were still there when colonists began to arrive from Europe.

French explorer Jolliet and missionary Marquette traveled through this area in 1673. In 1682, LaSalle claimed the land for France, calling it all Louisiana. Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac started a mine in modern day Madison County in 1715. The French continued to settle into the area, joined by travelers from Tennessee and Kentucky.

The Spanish built “The King’s Highway” (US 61), a road from New Madrid to Saint Louis in the later 1700’s. Daniel Boone’s Lick Trail (I-70) led from Saint Charles to Franklin in the early 1800’s. These and other roads helped the area  grow and develop.

Jefferson City, Missouri sits on the Missouri River near the center of the state where it serves at the state capitol. Jefferson City got its name from the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson led the way for the Louisiana Purchase which included Missouri.

Saint Louis was originally the capitol of the Missouri territory. But, after Missouri became a state, Jefferson City was chosen as the capitol in 1821. In 1821, Jefferson City didn’t even have its current name; it was called Lohman’s Landing. The location served as a trading post for travelers through the wilderness. Lohman’s Landing was about half from Saint Louis to Kansas City, two bustling communities. The Missouri legislature held their first meeting at Lohman’s Landing in 1826. Jefferson City didn’t even become a city until 1839.

By choosing Jefferson City as the capitol before it had really developed, the state leaders were able to create a capitol city by design. They started by building a great dome in the center of the city, just like the one in the nation’s capitol. The Capitol Complex is a centerpiece of Jefferson City, dominating the city’s skyline from every direction. The Jefferson City Capitol Complex is home to both legislative branches of government and the home of the Governor. In Jefferson City, the Jefferson Building, the Supreme Court, the State Office Building and the Truman Building, offices necessary for the functioning of the government are all built in the nearby vicinity.

Jefferson City, Missouri has now grown to a population of over forty-three thousand, not a megalopolis, but certainly more than a simple trading post. The primary employment of the residents of Jefferson City, Missouri is not surprisingly, public administration. Jefferson City is home to two hospitals, one airport, two heliports, an Amtrak station, one university, career center and a beauty school. Residents of Jefferson City have access to public and private schools.
