Jefferson City, Missouri—the City of Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson City, commonly referred to as “Jeff” or “Jeff City” and abbreviated as “JC” and “JCMO”, is the capital of the American state of Missouri. Originally called Lohman’s Landing, it started out as an unassuming settlement of explorers. In 1821, the town was declared state capital and subsequently given the name Missouriopolis, until in 1826 it was ultimately renamed after the third United States president Thomas Jefferson. Throughout its history, Jefferson City became prominent for the Missouri State Penitentiary, a prison that was opened from 1836 to 2004, earning the gruesome epithet of the “bloodiest 47 acres in America.” Today, Jefferson City has a population of 43,079 and a wider metropolitan area of 149,807, which makes it the 15th largest city in Missouri.

Jefferson City is located in the very middle of the state, halfway between Kansas City and St. Louis, on the right bank of the Missouri River. In 2013, it earned the title of America’s most beautiful small town—and certainly not by coincidence. With its alluring landscape, calm charm and historical landmarks, Jefferson City is abundant with wonderful places. In addition to the amazing Missouri River views and the beautiful main street, the list of attractions includes the Missouri State Capitol—a monumental building whose 238 foot-high dome is a true jewel of architecture. The earlier mentioned Penitentiary is also attracting large numbers of tourists, who are curious to peek inside the cells of some of the notorious inmates—such as assassin James Earl Ray and heavyweight champion Sonny Liston who used his time in prison to learn how to box.

Jefferson City is also well-known for its production of wine and is frequently referred to as the “Missouri Rhineland”, since it was the Germans who created the first vineyards in the mid-1800s. Because of its perfect combination of high-quality soil and hot climate, this region is perfect for wine growing. With more than 1,600 acres planted in grapes, the wine industry in Missouri is growing rapidly and consistently, counting more than 126 wineries. Today, wine plays an important role in Jefferson City, not only for the agricultural, but also for the tourist economy.

Although Jefferson City has recently been ranked by the WalletHub as the 4th best small city to start a business, the City’s 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report indicates that more than 60% people are working in the public sector, the State of Missouri being by far the largest employer. The unemployment rate in Jefferson City is 4.7%, with a predicted ten-year job growth of 32.2%. The income per capita is $25,934 and the median household income is $48,201. There are eleven public elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools in Jefferson City, as well as a smaller number of private schools. Higher educational institutions include Lincoln University, Columbia College, State Technical College of Missouri, William Woods University, Metro Business College, and Merrell University. On average, Jefferson City schools spend $9,319 per student. There are 17 pupils per teacher, 478 students per librarian, and 298 children per counselor.
