Jefferson County Historical Association

Welcome to the Jefferson County
Historical Association

The Jefferson County Historical Association (JCHA), located in the county seat Monticello, was chartered by the State of Florida as a non-profit organization in 1962. The Association is a member of the Florida Historical Society and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The JCHA has called the Wirick-Simmons House its home since the purchase of the historic property in 1964. The home was built in 1831 and is an excellent example of Greek Revival architecture, one of the few in Florida. Listed on the National Register of Historic Homes since 1972, the Historic American Building Survey has given the home an award for excellence.
