City of Laurie, Missouri

Lake of the Ozarks

LAURIE, MISSOURI  is embraced by beautiful country, rich with history and community and treasured for its summertime recreation. It was here that the Osage tribe of Native Americans once made their home, and today's amateur archaeologist discovers that the Osage River and Gravois Creek can still surprise by giving up arrowheads and tomahawks. It was also here that during the Great Depression, Bagnell Dam was completed to generate electricity, creating the Lake of the Ozarks amidst gently rolling hills lush with trees and greenery that would later give way to a resort community.
Laurie is a fourth-class city located midway between the cities of Versailles to the north and Camdenton to the south. Incorporated in 1966 with a population of 106, the city has grown to 945 as of the 2010 census
The city also serves as a hub of west side activity for many rural residents who reside out­side the city limits with numer­ous restaurants, banks, conve­nience stores, retail outlets and churches. Altogether, there are nearly 200 businesses and five planned subdivisions in the city.
