Prohibition City, Missouri facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Prohibition City is an unincorporated community in Worth County, in the U.S. state of Missouri.


An early variant name was "Smithton". A settlement called Smithton served as county seat, but the town's population dwindled after the seat was removed to Grant City. A post office called Smithton was established in 1861, and closed in 1870; the post office reopened as Prohibition City in 1877, and was discontinued in 1881. A first settler's advocacy of prohibition politics caused the most recent name to be selected.
