Cape Girardeau County was organized on October 1, 1812 and was named after Ensign Jean Girardot, a French Officer, who developed a trading post on the site of the present city of Cape Girardeau. The County Seat is in Jackson, Missouri, which was the first city named in honor of President Andrew Jackson.  The first County Courthouse was built in 1818 by John Davis. The present courthouse in Jackson was completed in 1908 and designed by P. H. Weathers.

No Burn advisory issued.

Due to the combination of temperature, low humidity, dry ground covering, and the possibility of increasing winds, the Cape Girardeau County Commission is issuing a "no burn advisory" for Cape Girardeau County.

All county residents are advised to postpone open outdoor burning until the fire danger decreases.

If you are driving or working outdoors, be extremely careful to discard smoking materials.  The grass along the highways is very dry and could easily ignite. Campers and hunters should be extremely careful.
