Scott, the county seat of Scott county, is an incorporated city of the third class, located on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, the Missouri Pacific and the Garden City, Gulf & Northern railroads, in the central part of the county. It has 2 banks, 2 weekly newspapers (the Chronicle and the News-Lever), 2 flour mills, 2 elevators, and is the location of the county high school. A large farming district is tributary to Scott, it being the only incorporated town in the county. During the decade from 1900 to 1910 its population increased from 212 to 918. It has telegraph and express offices and an international money order postoffice. The town was founded in Sept., 1885, by a town company, which donated a block of land to the county for a courthouse site, a block to the city for school purposes, a lot to each of four church organizations, and set apart grounds for a public park. Within a year there was a population of 600, with 3 newspapers (the News, the Sentinel and the Herald), and a number of retail establishments.
