August 10, 2021, marks the two hundredth anniversary of Missouri’s entry as the 24th state to enter the United States. To honor the state's bicentennial, the My Missouri 2021 Photo Exhibit, a collection of photographs showcasing the geographic and cultural landscape of our state, is now on display at the Missouri River Regional Library through June 30, 2020.

We have highlighted the exhibition photographs selected from Jefferson City with fun facts and history. However, with only a year to go until our state’s two hundredth birthday, why not start celebrating now? We are giving away a JC Swag Bag to one lucky winner! To enter our giveaway, you must fill out a questionnaire located at the Missouri River Regional Library’s front desk with the factoids we have provided below each image. The winner will be announced on July 1, 2020.


  • Starting Thursday, June 25th, 2020, repeated every day until Tuesday, June 30, 2020 — all day
