Cole Camp is one of the oldest communities in west central Missouri, with the first settler arriving in 1829. By the Mid 1830's the town was established and the area around it was rapidly being settled. One of the first battles of the Civil War was fought two miles east of Cole Camp, and Cole Camp continued top be an important location throughout the war. The town and the surrounding countryside boasts of several pre-Civil War homes and buildings, most of which are still in use. The downtown area was well on its way to being established in the 1890's and remains the economic center of the community. The City has been awarded a state grant to conduct a survey of historical resources with the objective of having the town placed on the National Historic Register.
