History & History Related Items

Waco history:

Waco is a small township located 15 miles north of Joplin and is 3/4 of a mile west on KK highway off of 171 highway. Many of the parcels of land were granted to United States Soldiers by President James Buchanan as early as 1857. The town received a Post Office in 1878. It had the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway the traveled through it, making it a valuable way for goods to be shipped. As time went by and the mining industries grew so did the town, growing to have such businesses as a bank, 2 grocery stores, a lumber yard, a gas station with repair abilities, a nearby grain mill, a movie house as well as a bar, an ice cream parlor, and even an "evening house". But, as the mining grew to an end, the people slowly moved on to other places. The mill burned, a grocery store has been torn down, the ice cream parlor and movie house are long gone, the lumber yard and the band are someone's home.
