Founded in 1898, the State Historical Society of Missouri is the premier research center for the study of Missouri state and local history. The administrative headquarters of the Society is located at the Center for Missouri Studies in Columbia, Missouri. This state-of-the-art facility opened in 2019 and secures the ability of SHSMO to carry out its work for a second century.
