Jarrot Mansion Project, Inc. is a citizen-based, not-for-profit organization that has contributed countless volunteer hours providing advocacy and awareness for programs and projects at the Jarrot Mansion. The Jarrot Mansion Project, Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt (501(c)(3) organization whose goal is to see the Nicholas Jarrot Mansion restored and open to the public.
The Jarrot Mansion State Historic Site is located in the historic town of Cahokia, Illinois.

The village evolved into an agricultural and commercial center during 18th century.
