Prescott, an incorporated town of Linn county, is situated on the St. Louis & San Francisco R. R. 8 miles south of Pleasanton. It was named in honor of C. H. Prescott, auditor and treasurer of the Missouri River, Fort Scott & Gulf R. R. at the time it was built through the town, which was laid out in 1870. In April of that year the first store was opened. It was followed by a drug store and a blacksmith shop, and in June the postoffice was established. The first school was taught in 1873, a large school house was erected in 1873, and at the present time Prescott has an excellent public school system. There are a number of general stores, a hotel, a money order postoffice, express and telegraph facilities, and in 1910 Prescott had a population of 255.
