Log Home / Learning Center Project
Missouri’s State Capital is full of history and Missouri Farm Bureau’s circa 1850s log home is a piece of interactive history waiting to be explored!
Missouri Farm Bureau’s Foundation for Agriculture is responsible for restoring the authentic dog-trot style log structure, which is now listed on the National Registry of Historic Sites. The home tells many important stories. Visitors can learn about our agricultural heritage over the last 150 years. Step back in time to see the rooms as they appeared in the late 1800s. Displays and short videos describe agricultural life for inhabitants of a young state.
Group tours are available that include a tour guide at no charge. The home is located at the Missouri Farm Bureau Center at the corner of Missouri Boulevard and South Country Club Drive in Jefferson City (approximately 5.5 miles west of the State Capitol off of Highway 50). Tours last approximately an hour and reservations can be made in advance by contacting Rebecca Hoelscher at 573-893-1400 x. 2383.
Help us tell the story of agriculture and its preceding importance to Jefferson City.
