Our Mission

Our mission is to educate the public about the architectural and cultural heritage of Southeast Missouri and to encourage and support historic preservation throughout the region.​

The Foundation exists because Cape Girardeau and its surrounding communities have a legacy of unique character and a quality of life that can be maintained and reinforced through public education about historic preservation.

Heritage Hall Hours

Come see our exhibit, A Lasting Legacy: Jerome Bibb Legg in the City of Roses. Legg was responsible for the first four buildings on the campus of Southeast, historic homes, and regional courthouses.
