The history of Farmington
Missouri became a state in 1821, and in September of 1822, David Murphy deeded 52 acres to St. Francois County for the establishment of a county seat. This land was surveyed into a 24 block area and is presently referred to as the historic downtown area. The first courthouse was built soon after. The first store was built in 1823 and a hotel was built in 1826. Farmington was officially incorporated as a town in 1836. Growth was initially slow prior to the Civil War, but by the 1800s there is mention of at least thirty businesses including general stores, grocers, a bakery, a jewelry and musical instrument store, a tailor, a stationery and job printer, a cigar factory, several types of mills, and a blacksmith and wagon shop.
