Missouri is the hills Jesse James rode across; it is the rivers Mark Twain floated on. As the site of the two most important river confluences in the country – where the Ohio and Missouri rivers flow into the Mississippi River – Missouri has reigned in the American imagination as the “Gateway to the West” ever since Meriwether Lewis and William Clark launched their Corps of Discovery Expedition here in 1804.
The Show Me State developed along the Missouri River corridor that slices across Missouri from east to west, connecting the great midwestern cities of St. Louis and Kansas City. North of the “Big Muddy,” as the Missouri is known, the land rolls gently in the manner of the Great Plains. The southern counties of the state are punctuated by the Ozark Mountains, the most extensive range between the Appalachians and the Rockies.
Available rural land abounds in Missouri. Aside from Texas, there are more farms here than any other state. Of the 100,000 farms several thousand are on the market at any one time, ready to be worked for income or converted into a recreational retreat. Some of the most fertile and affordable farm property is in the counties of Dunklin, New Madrid and Pemiscot that make up the Missouri Bootheel that juts out of the southeasternmost part of the state. Potential land buyers should not be dissuaded by the New Madrid earthquakes that rocked this area in 1811 and remain the most powerful tremblers ever to strike the eastern United States.
Affordable prices are the watch word of hunting land in the Ozarks where the foothills are saturated with trophy game. Fishermen can look for property along the more than one million Missouri acres of surface water that are home to more than 200 species of fish, including some of America’s largest catfish.
