Jewish Section of the Columbia Cemetery

In 1996, the Boone County Historical Society recognized the area encompassing the original Columbia cemetery as well as the Jewish and African-American sections as a Historic Site. This declaration officially recognizes that the property is of significance to the county. For Jewish residents of Mid-Missouri, however, the Jewish burial ground has always been of more value than a plot of land for simply burying the dead. In fact, the property has played a significant and integral role in the lives of Mid-Missouri’s Jewish population since its establishment.
