Our Mission

The Cape Girardeau County Historical Society (CHCHS) is a non-profit organization founded in 1926 to document and preserve the people, places, things, and events of the region. In 2014, the Cape Girardeau County History Center was established at 102 South High St., in Jackson, Missouri, with support from the Shelby and Mildred Brown Trust. The History Center will serve an international audience with museum quality historic displays, education events, cultural events, and regional cultural resource promotions.
