Discover Lake Ozarks


The Lake Area History Pages!

On the following pages you'll find all sorts of interesting facts and stories about the history of Missouri's fabulous Lake of the Ozarks and the surrounding four-county area. (You'll find a few tall tales and local lore mixed in as well!) The topics range from pre-history to the development of the area as a major vacation destination.

Hi, folks! My name is Mike Gillespie. Over the past twenty-five years I've worked as a history teacher, a tour guide, a researcher, and a writer. I'm very happy for the opportunity to bring you these free history pages. I'll add new topics on a regular basis, so come back often and I'll do my best to entertain and inform you.
