City Charter

Jefferson City Today

Despite all the changes over the years, including the changing of the town’s name, some things have always remained the same. A newspaper article from 1853 says it best: “The views are not excelled anywhere for picturesque beauty. Landscapes of wooded hills and cultivated valleys stretch out til the eye rests against the blue dimness of the distant mountains to behold wondrous loveliness…The courageous, dignified and refined people make Mossy Creek a most delightful place to visit. Hospitality is second nature with people here, and a visitor never fails to come again.” The beauty and hospitality found in Jefferson City remain unchanging, even after all these years, making this city the best place to visit and live.
