Preserving Our History

The Friends of Jefferson Barracks

The Friends of Jefferson Barracks is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and improvement of St. Louis County Parks' Jefferson Barracks Park Historic Site in South St. Louis County, Missouri. The FJB members contribute their time, energy, fund raising and other efforts to make this goal a reality.

The Friends of Jefferson Barracks plays an active role in supporting St. Louis County at Jefferson Barracks through a wide variety of volunteer service projects and fundraising activities. The FJB offers many opportunities for participation including the Adults Easter Egg Hunt, (If you wish to register for the Adult Egg Hunt click on the following link: https://www.friendsofjeffersonbarracks.com/egg_hunt_store.php) World War II Weekend, Historic Hayrides, Concerts, Swap Meets, and other events. In addition, many FJB members volunteer as Museum Attendants, Trail Watchers, or Gardeners throughout Jefferson Barracks Park.

The Friends of Jefferson Barracks operates the Gift Shop located on the lower level of the Visitors Center (pictured above right). Funds generated in this shop and at FJB events help to purchase historic artifacts, support historical exhibits and displays, and contract needs and services necessary to the operation of the park. Funds raised by the FJB have made possible the restoration of the upper level of the Visitors Center and the building of the Stockton Shelter next to the Veterans Memorial Amphitheater, among other projects.

The Friends of Jefferson Barracks members receive the FJB newsletter and announcements of FJB activities, along with a discount in the Gift Shop. Membership also provides the opportunity to help create and support an educational and cultural resource; to share friendships and build community spirit; an appreciation of the historic site's history, landscape, and natural resources; and the satisfaction of preserving something special for future generations.

Individual memberships start at just $20 for the year and families (Home Front) can sign up for $30. Doughboy level is $50, and 6th Infantry (Life) membership is $200. Get connected with this group of men and women who like to have fun while helping a good cause.
