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.
