A little about Neosho

Neosho, nationally known as the Flower Box City, received a grant in 1955 to launch an experiment in city beautification, and has since concentrated on easy-care planters in every conceivable location. Flower boxes in front of business establishments, churches, schools and residential homes have spread Neosho’s fame.

The history of Neosho

A combination of geography and opportunity drew the earliest settlers to the Neosho area. Prior to the Civil War, the economy revolved around agriculture, retail trade and eventually mining. After the war, economic growth and settlement revolved around agriculture. One of the area’s most famous citizens emerged from this agricultural boom. George Washington Carver, born a slave near Diamond and first educated in Neosho, became a nationally eminent agronomist, botanist, educator and artist. In 1941, Neosho changed forever when the United States government established Camp Crowder on the southern edge of town. The camp, a U.S. Army Signal Corps Training Center, flooded Neosho with an average population of 40,000 uniformed men and women. The impact of Camp Crowder’s establishment can only be matched by the impact of its closure. The millions of dollars spent locally by the government and soldiers disappeared almost entirely when World War II ended.
