On December 3, 1818, Illinois became the twenty-first state of the Union.  Less than four months later on March 26, 1819, settlers in the local area organized Jefferson County.  Since both will soon be 200 years old, the Jefferson County Historical Society has been hosting preliminary meetings concerning the upcoming bicentennial of both organizations. 

A meeting to discuss coordination of county-wide activities was held Tuesday, July 25th at the Jefferson County Historical Village.  Some of the attendees are shown below.  

Organizations involved to this point are the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, Mt. Vernon Convention and Visitors Bureau, Downtown Development, Pendleton Township, Elk Prairie Township, Field Township, and the Village of Dix.

The next meeting will be September 27, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. at the Historical Village.  County-wide participation is encouraged.
