Nevada, Vernon County, Missouri

Card showing the Vernon County Courthouses

 Nevada is the County Seat of Vernon County, Missouri. Located near the Kansas border, Nevada has an interesting history, especially during the Civil War. Interesting stories of Bushwhackers and Jayhawkers abound. In 1863, the entire town was burned.

We have collected Vernon County memorabilia for some time and thought it was time to share just a few of our favorite items at this web site. Our reason for developing this site is that we just enjoy doing it. We hope you enjoy visiting.
