Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Cambridge is an extinct town in Saline County, in the U.S. state of Missouri. The GNIS classifies it as a populated place.

Cambridge was laid out in 1848. With the construction of the railroad, business activity shifted to nearby places, and the town's population dwindled. A post office called Cambridge was established in 1845, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1903.
