Jefferson City is named for Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States.Jefferson City is on the northern edge of the Ozark Plateau on the southern side of the Missouri River near the state's geographic centre, in a region known as Mid-Missouri. It is also at the western edge of one of the major wine-producing regions of the Midwest, the Missouri Rhineland. The city is dominated by the domed Capitol, which rises from a bluff overlooking the Missouri River to the north; Lewis and Clark passed the bluff on their historic expedition upriver before Europeans established any settlement there.
