Monett, Missouri Depot
Creator:
Unknown
Description:
The railroad depot at Monett, Missouri used by the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway Company. The new town at the junction of the St. Louis and Texas Railroad with the Frisco Railroad, 282 miles southwest of St. Louis, is 1,305 feet above the level of that city. The location was originally called Billings, but the citizens of the old town petitioned in October, 1871, to have the name changed to Plymouth. In June, 1876, George A. Purdy, agent of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad Co., petitioned the court to vacate the town of Plymouth. At this time the company

owned the town solely, so that there was no objection to vacating the plat. (—The State of Missouri, History of Barry County, p. 787.) Monett was named for Henry Monett, who was a passenger agent for the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. (News-Leader, no date.)
