Nevada, MO history

Nevada, Missouri Directory for 1905

History:  Cherry St, Nevada, MO

 

Nevada, Missouri, located in Vernon County, on the Kansas border, between Joplin and Kansas City, was the subject of a city directory in 1905.

The historical volume, of around 180 pages, presents a picture of a rather cosmopolitan community on what just a few years earlier had been the frontier.  Today, it is an important source document for any historian of the frontier, for local historians interested in western Missouri, and particularly for family historians and genealogists.

At the time this directory was published, Nevada, MO was the location of Cottey College, a college and conservatory for young women, and also of one of Missouri's largest insane asylums (as well as two private sanitaria).  The community was  also served by two railroads, at a time in history where rail service was vital to the health of a community.

Nevada, in 1905, was clearly an up-and-coming community.
