Jefferson County Community Ministries, Inc. (JCCM) is a cooperative ministry of local churches that assists people in need. Assistance is provided on a limited scale for short-term emergencies in an effort to enable people to work out permanent solutions to meet their own needs.
Many people know that Charles Town, WV was founded by Charles Washington, George Washington’s youngest brother, in 1780, but what is the history of the buildings in downtown Charles Town.
After much research by one of our JCCM volunteers, we have been able to build a timeline on the history of the current JCCM building starting in the 1940’s. To complete this project, our volunteer spent time at the Jefferson County Museum, mined social media sites, and scoured the local landscape for information and photos.
