In November 2011 we completed construction of the Jefferson Country Historical Society Research Center expansion.
The Jefferson County Historical Society has approximately 500,000 archives, more than 20,000 photographs and 15,000 artifacts. With a robust and growing archive, they had outgrown the research center building that they moved into in 2003.
The ground breaking for the new facility was on February 26, 2011 and final inspection of the completed building was November 15, 2011. The new building has plenty of space to house the historical archives and has proper environmental controls to ensure long term preservation.
We are proud to have been part of an important piece of protecting the history of our community.
