Yes, it was a temporary capital.

The first capital in the world was St. Charles. This was the very first state capital given to the state of Missouri. However, St. Charles was only the capital of Missouri for about 10 years.

The Missouri capitols (legislative halls) were located in St. Louis (territorial capital), St. Charles (temporary capital) and Jefferson City (permanent state capital).

Missouri became a state in 1820. Prior to that, the capital of the Missouri Territory was St. Louis, MO. When Missouri became a state, the capital was moved to St. Charles, MO. In 1826, Jefferson City became the capital of Missouri. During the Civil War, the Confederate capital of Missouri was re-located to Marshall, TX.

Jefferson City was named the capital when Missouri became a state in 1821.(St. Louis served as the territorial capital, and St. Charles, just to the NW, as the temporary capital from 1821 to 1826.)

Jefferson City, Missouri's capital, was named to honor Thomas Jefferson. It was designated the state capital in 1821, but for the first 5 years of statehood, the legislature met in St. Charles, on the Missouri River near St. Louis.

The capital of Missouri as a territory was St. Louis, and it was the de facto capital when Missouri became a state in August, 1821. However, the city of St. Charles, slightly NW on the Missouri River, can be said to be the first actual state capital: it served as the temporary capital from 1821 to 1826, while the new capital at Jefferson City was being built, farther inland on the Missouri.

The capital of Missouri was St. Charles at the time it was admitted into the Union. The city is situated on the west bank of the Missouri river about 27 miles west of the St. Louis Arch on the Mississippi river.

Jefferson City had been named the state capital, but was just being developed. So from 1821 to 1826, the legislature met in the temporary capital at St. Charles, on the Missouri River just NW of St. Louis.

Missouri had had three state capitals. In 1812, when the Missouri Territory was established, St. Charles was chosen as the capital, and remained the capital until 1821. In 1821, the capital was moved to Lohman's Landing. Later, Lohman's Landing was changed to Jefferson City, which is the current capital of Missouri.

Jefferson City is the capital city in Missouri.

The territorial capital was in St. Louis, but had moved to St. Charles by 1821, when the state was admitted to the Union. A new capital was built in the interior at Lohman's Landing, which was renamed Jefferson City.

The first state capital was in St. Charles, Missouri, from 1821 to 1826.The territorial capital (from the Louisiana Territory) was in St. Louis, but in 1821 the southeastern part of the territory became the state of Missouri.On gaining statehood, a new capital was built at Jefferson City, then called Lohman's Landing. The city was named for Thomas Jefferson.

None. St Louis is the largest city in Missouri, but the capital of Missouri is Jefferson City.

No. St. Charles was the capital in 1821 when Missouri first became a state. The intention was always to establish a more centrally located capital, though, so it was shifted to Jefferson City permanently in 1826.

The capital of Missouri is Jefferson City, but it is noton the Mississippi River -- it is on the Missouri River. The territorial capital (St. Louis) is on the Mississippi.

St. Louis is along the eastern border, on the Mississippi River across from western Illinois. The capital was moved from St. Louis to Jefferson City in 1821, but the city of St. Charles served as the temporary capital until Jefferson City was completed in 1826.
