Lamar, Missouri, is a well-established community with a long history and rich heritage as the Barton County seat. Among its many distinguishing features, Lamar was the birthplace of the thirty-third president, Harry S. Truman. In fact, the former president’s house remains in Lamar as a landmark with daily tours. The community was named after the Republic of Texas’s President Mirabeau Lamar and was incorporated in 1870. Wyatt Earp was its first constable. Today it remains a small town but has much to offer prospective homebuyers. Additionally, the community has won the Missouri Community Betterment competition four times.
Among the many amenities found in Lamar, residents enjoy a one-mile walking trail with fitness stations strategically placed every quarter mile. It also has a lovely fifty-five-acre park with basketball courts, lighted tennis courts, eight baseball diamonds, seven shelter houses, and a sprawling children’s playground. Lamar is also home to a six thousand square foot aquatic park that features a two thousand square foot indoor swimming pool.
