The Missouri Credit Union Association has officially closed the purchase of an historic property in the state capitol, Jefferson City, to serve as the new Missouri Credit Union House. The House is to serve as a state-level version of the national Credit Union House in Washington. "This is an important step for Missouri credit unions," says Rosie Holub, MCUA president/CEO. "We will have a permanent place in Jefferson City, which will assist us in legislative efforts and increase our abilities to share the credit union message." The two-story building was constructed in 1885 and previously housed an antique store. It is located on Madison Street, just a few blocks away from the capitol building. When renovation is complete, it will include a consumer financial education center, a museum reflecting Missouri credit union history, meeting rooms and a reception area for hosting lawmakers, as well as office space for staff.
