The history of Monett
In 1887, Monett was established and marked its beginning as a Frisco Railroad town. Originally a settlement called Plymouth, Plymouth Junction or Plymouth Crossing, this location was part of the Cherokee Indian’s “Trail of Tears” in 1837-38. Monett quickly became a vibrant Frisco terminal. This facilitated the growth in agriculture trade, retail commerce and small manufacturing. Young Monett developed an economy of much diversity -- livestock, apples, tomatoes, cigar factory, ice plant, razor/cutlery factory, creamery, poultry, dairy and the famous “Ozark” strawberries. Monett became known as the Strawberry Capital of the Midwest. The first licensed auctioneer in Missouri operated with the Ozark Fruit Growers Association of Monett. However, the central “hub” of all the early economic activity was from the Frisco Railroad.
