Cain City | Ellsworth | Holyrood | Lorraine | Wilson | Essick Piece on Ellsworth County
Located in the extreme southwestern part of the county, Cain City was founded by a group of Canadians. The Missouri Pacific Railroad was wooed by the citizens to build a rail line, but it decided to build it in Rice County. Cain City moved to Rice County along the right-of-way, but it did not survive. A cemetery is all that remains where the original town site was located.
