Mt. Vernon Chamber of Commerce - Mt. Vernon, Missouri

Mt. Vernon's centralized location places it within an afternoon drive of two lakes, the nationally recognized tourist spot of Branson and several major cities. In many ways this is why Mt. Vernon is often referred to as the "starting line" for the Ozark Mountain Parkway, the scenic route along Highway 265 toward Branson.

One of the unique traits about the city, however, is the number of activities that families or individuals can enjoy without having to drive past the city limit signs.

Mt. Vernon residents and city officials are proud of their park facilities, seven in all. The largest park in the city can be found north of the downtown area. The "Underwood Spirit of 76" park complex features an Olympic-sized pool, four baseball fields, tennis courts and a "Mighty Mite" football field, along with a picnic area that winds along the tranquil waters of Williams Creek.

Other Mt. Vernon parks and places of interest include:

Jones Memorial and Chapel
Jones Memorial and Chapel, built in 1961 as a "thank you" to the people by Lawrence K. Jones, is located northeast of town, adjacent to the golf course. The stone building houses a wedding chapel and meeting hall and the Lawrence County Historical Society Museum.

The museum and cabin are open from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through October and by appointment. You can rent this local landmark for your meeting, wedding or other special event. For more information please call 417-466-2185.

Williams Creek Fishing Pond
Located just across from the "Underwood Spirit of '76" park is the Williams Creek Fishing Pond, which offers handicapped accessible fishing piers and a popular walking path as well as a spacious picnic area.

Wynne Park
The site of Mt. Vernon's Veteran's Memorial, Wynne Park is located on the business loop and provides playground equipment and a picnic area.

Golf Course

The Adamson Cabin
This cabin is one of the few remaining authentic pioneer homes found in the region.It was constructed in 1845, the same year the county was founded, and was moved to its present location next to Jones Memorial on N. East Street. Admission is free.

2nd Old Jail
The city's "2nd old jail," was built in 1854, is located a block west of the downtown Square and will eventually become the city's second public museum.

The Lawrence County Historical Society houses its historical and genealogical information in the Walter C. McCanse Library at 206 W. Water where they are accessible to researchers six days a week.

Fish Hatchery
The Chesapeake Fish Hatchery, which produces a variety of warm and cool water fish, can be found east of Mt. Vernon on Highway 174. It is an ultra-modern facility consisting of 24 ponds, 12 raceways and a large hatchery building. For more information or for tours, call 417-466-3421.
