Additional Details:
What is now Missouri was part of the Louisiana Territory discovered by the Spaniard DeSoto in 1541 and the Frenchmen Marquette and Joliet in 1673. Spain in 1799 ceded her claim to France. And in 1803 the U. S. bought the Territory. Missouri was admitted into the Union in 1821 as the 24th State. Jackson County was organized in December 1826, and in July, the first county court convened at Independence. In1827 a log court house was built, and in 1836 and 1848 new court houses were completed which in turn made way for the present structure.
