First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site

First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site

Missouri's first legislators met from 1821 to 1826 in the buildings of the First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site to reorganize Missouri's territorial government into progressive state system. Many heated debates of state's rights and slavery filled the rooms of the temporary capital. Legislators meet here while the new capitol buildings were being constructed in the new city of Jefferson City. Visitors can take a guided tour through the actual restored and furnished rooms where Missouri state government was created and first practiced. The restored Peck brothers' general store and residence have been furnished as they might have looked in the early 1800s.
