City considers Moreau Drive area for historic register
Thursday, September 15, 2011
A fire, a streetcar and an advantageous location a century ago helped build what today is one of Jefferson City’s historic treasure-lined streets.
The State Historic Preservation Office confirmed the neighborhood along Moreau Drive has a distinctive past when it recently invited the city and its Historic Preservation Commission to submit a full application to its grant program.
The area surrounding Moreau Drive was largely undeveloped in the early 20th century, as it was the site of the county fairgrounds and the Lincoln Institute Farm.
