How We're Helping

The Jefferson Historical 

Society & Museum is a non-profit 501(c)3.  Our focus is on preserving the history of Jefferson.  Currently, we are working with the City of Jefferson, the Landmark Advisory Commission and the Conser family to repair and restore the community's oldest building, the Conser House.  While we  would love the opportunity  to house our museum in this unique building, we are looking at what might be the best fit for our community.  With the help of volunteers, we organize fundraisers and hold exciting community-building events that support the pioneer history of Jefferson.
