Through more than 200 years of history, the City of Farmington, Missouri has enjoyed a continual and consistent growth in its population, area and economic base.
Farmington began as a family settlement in the late 1790s when the area that is now Missouri was under Spanish rule. From those early days of Missouri statehood and Farmingtons incorporation as a county seat village, the City of Farmington has become a thriving municipality of more than 14,000 people with a diversified and solidly-based economy.
Major department stores, specialty shops, restaurants and professional offices are found primarily in four areas of the city: Maple Valley Center, Highway 67, Karsch Boulevard, and downtown Farmington. The businesses located along these corridors provide the goods and services that make Farmington a regional shopping center that meets the needs of people in St. Francois and surrounding counties.
Farmington is home to well-kept stately residences along tree-lined streets. The cooperative involvement of individuals, businesses, civic clubs, and government in community affairs revolve around a commitment to the the preservation of “small town America.” These traditional values in the midst of a bustling, thriving, progressive business environment are evidence the people of Farmington have not forgotten their roots and are proud to live and work in “The City of Tradition and Progress.”
