Polk County Land Auction - 205 Acres
Founded in the mid-19th century, Humansville's history is woven into the fabric of the nation's past. Its very name echoes the stories of the people who settled here shaping the town's identity. Humansville, Missouri Was named in honor of Judge James G. Human, an American settler who made his home in the area in 1834. The town has had a post office operating since 1839.
In the midst of the Civil War on March 26, 1862, a skirmish went down on the outskirts of Humansville. About 350 Missouri Confederates, led by Col. James M. Frazier, clashed with companies of pro-Union Missouri State Militia. While casualties were relatively low, Col. Frazier suffered a mortal wound, prompting the Confederates to retreat. With a population that barely surpasses a thousand, Humansville is situated on Brush Creek and along the old Kansas City, Clinton, and Springfield Railway. A notable piece of history, the George Dimmitt Memorial Hospital, earned its spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
