There is a lot to do in the Nevada / Vernon County Area. We have great hunting and fishing resources, a rich history, sports and unique stores and shops. We are also centrally located for a day trip excursion to Historic Fort Scott, KS about 30 minutes to the West. Springfield, MO, Kansas City, MO and Joplin, MO are all within a 2 hour drive.

Area History and the Bushwhacker Museum:
We are rich in Civil War History with 660 of the 6600 battles fought here in Missouri, mostly along the Missouri/Kansas Border. Nevada was home to the Bushwhackers, the guerilla forces with Southern Sympathies. Many towns in Vernon and surrounding counties were burned to the ground by Federal troops. Locally the Bushwhacker Museum preserves this history along with a great display of pioneer artifacts and early homestead and business displays. www.bushwhacker.org
