The Lone Jack Historical Society (LJHS) is the primary volunteer organization for the Lone Jack Battlefield. The LJHS was formed in 2000 in an effort to protect the historic battlefield and cemetery and to support, protect, and preserve the unique history of the Lone Jack area. The desire is to ensure the future education of our children, to go forward while remembering our very important past.

Since the creation of the organization, the LJHS has coordinated a cultural resource survey, a ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey, and an archaeological survey in 2011. In 2011, the LJHS worked with the Jackson County Parks & Recreation (Historic Sites Division) to prepare a National Register nomi- nation for the Lone Jack Battlefield and received funding assistance from the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) to complete the Lone Jack Battlefield Preservation Plan.
