Cape Girardeau County History Center to Open in Jackson

NEWS

Jackson, MO will be the location for a Cape Girardeau County History Center, which will highlight area history through a series of rotating exhibitions, history books, and local artistry. Carla Jordon is the brains behind this operation. She has teamed up with Cape Girardeau Historical Society to make this project possible. The history center will be completely free, and will rely on area schools, churches, businesses, and local organizations to help provide and create exhibits that reveal the history of the region. The first couple of exhibits are already being planned; they will include a floral quilt collection from Lynn Taylor, and a “Hardware & Tool History in Cape Girardeau County” exhibit. There will also be a front window display which will change out four times a year. A ‘Spring into History’ theme will open the center with paper art flowers, historic scans, and a garden architectural piece to start. Jordan has several other plans for the center, including a Thursday coffee talk, and a bus tour of the area. She says that, "I want this to be the gem of Jackson. I want this to be a place where everybody can come and see what's going on in the region as far as cultural tourism goes.” The center is scheduled to open mid-March, and is located at 102 S. High St. (formerly the Andrew Jackson store).
