Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Not is an unincorporated community in Shannon County, in the U.S. state of Missouri.

History

A post office called Not was established in 1886, and remained in operation until 1917. The community was so named on account of the knot that adorned a black oak tree near the original town site (a postal error accounts for the error in spelling, which was never corrected).
