Homesteading in Scott County

Shallow Water

Shallow Water was founded in the early 1900's by Quakers who wanted to provide an institute where their children could learn in a religious setting. It later became the grain headquarters for the southern part of the county due to two grain elevators that were built along the Missouri Pacific railroad line.
