Cole County, Missouri was named, in 1820, in honor of Capt. Stephen Cole, who erected Cole's Fort where the town of Boonville now stands, during the War of 1812, as a protection against the British, Indians, or allies. The county seat was located in Marion in 1822 but was moved to Jefferson City, which is also the State Capitol of Missouri, in 1828.
