Located on the banks of the Missouri river in the centre of the state, Jefferson City is the hub of state government. Jefferson City was established by an act of the U.S. Congress on December 31, 1821.
Many of the original settlers came from Virginia in the vicinity of
Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and were in fact friends of the
former President. The City of Jefferson, named in his honour, was
incorporated in 1825, four years after its founding.
