Mission Statement

The Jackson County (Missouri) Historical Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the written, oral, and physical legacy of this county. We do this by maintaining physical collections and promoting the study, appreciation, and interpretation of local and regional history.


The Jackson County Historical Society can trace its history back to July 6, 1909, on the front lawn of the Wornall House. 200 Jackson Countians gathered for the first meeting. The Society reorganized into the modern organization that we know today in 1958.
