This year's Cole County Historical Society Christmas ornament commemorates the county's bicentennial, displaying the 1820-2020 bicentennial date, along with an image of the Cole County Courthouse.

Members of the Historical Society gave each Cole County commissioner a Christmas tree ornament Tuesday to kick off the annual ornament sale.

The three-story, limestone structure at the intersection of Monroe and High streets in Jefferson City was the third courthouse in Cole County's history. It was completed in the late 1890s and was salvaged after a fire in 1918. The courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

This is the Cole County Historical Society's 34th annual ornament. Past years' ornaments have featured mostly buildings and some local icons, all with a relevance to the county's history.

Each ornament costs $20. They are being sold at various local businesses such as Carrie's Hallmark Shop, Samuel's Tuxedos and Southbank Gift Company, as well as at the Cole County Historical Society Museum at 109 Madison St.

The money raised from the sale of the ornaments goes to help the society pay for preservation of historic items in their collection.

For more information, call the Historical Society at 573-635-1850.
