The city was founded in the early 1880s and developed after the construction of the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway in 1887. Ed and Will Jones established a store on the west bank of Wanderers Creek and adopted the name of their hometown in Missouri. U.S. 287 runs through the center of town. The town is sometimes called the Iris Village because of the many irises planted around town.
