Nodaway County, Missouri Facts

Missouri State Flag

The area which became Nodaway County was once a part of Indian lands covered with tall waving prairie grasses on the uplifts or "narrows".  Imagine the vast prairies heavy with game and uncluttered by trees, except along the three north-to-south rivers and the small creeks!

Missouri territory became a state in 1821, but the Indians still held the triangle to the northwest, which contained very fertile and desirable land.



The Sheriff Department is currently accepting applications for dispatching and jailors.  Contact 660-582-7451 for information.
