Bates City, Missouri
A description of Bates City from 1910:
"Bates City, in the southwestern part of
Clay township, was platted in 1878 on the line of the Alton railroad, and the
next year a postoffice was established, J. F. Eneberg being the first
postmaster. The first house was built by L. B. Kelley, while Mr. Eneberg
started the first store. An eight-hundred-dollar school house was erected in
1881 and the first teacher received twenty-five dollars per month. The first
regular physician was Dr. M. W. Flournoy.
