When the Jefferson City High School alma mater refers to “... The Red and Black will always wave over JC, JC ...,” it may not be repetition for musical affect.
The blue clapboard and limestone home at 105 Jackson St. has felt the blood of wounded soldiers — Confederate and Union — drip on its floors when it was used as a hospital. The home has heard the cries of mothers and wives who lost loved ones in the War Between the States — or their bold refutes to those reports. And the home has seen a wedding of a president’s kin in the city named after him. If only the home — one of the oldest remaining in town — could relate the tales of a loyal, well-thought-of pioneer family from Jefferson City’s early history.
