Where in Missouri is...?


Good Afternoon!

It is another fiercely
windy day today so
hold on tight because
we are headed south
for N. As you can see
we are off to Noel,
Mo.

The map shows us that
Noel is located in the
south-western part of
the state, it is on the
Missouri and Arkansas
border along the Elk
river.

Noel is a small town, the
census in 2012 showed
that the population was
1,824.

It was named after two
stockmen and owners of
a sawmill. CW and WJ Noel.

Each year tens of thousands
of Christmas cards and letters
are sent to the Noel post office
to be stamped "Noel, Mo 'The
Christmas city in the Ozark
Vacation Land.' "

Visitors to Noel will find plenty
of camping and canoeing also.

It is a short drive to Branson
and Eureka Springs in Arkansas
from Noel.

Back to Kansas we go to find
O tomorrow.

~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Hi, Melinda! I have driven through Noel. The road to the town skirts that beautiful river. I am not much for canoeing, swimming or fishing, but I do enjoy the beauty of nature. Twyla

  3. Fun to stamp cards there. I've got Branson on my list and I'll add Noel if I'm in the neighborhood.
