The city of Hallsville, in Boone County, Missouri, was founded in 1866, and named for Judge John W. Hall, its first postmaster. Prior to its official founding, the community had grown at a crossroads around a store and a blacksmith shop. When the railroad extended its tracks to t he region, it platted the town of Hickman, a half mile south, but Hallsville grew while Hickman failed. During the American Civil War, on September 22, 1863, the Mount Zion Church east of Hallsville was burned by Union troops, and later rebuilt. Hallsville is southwest of Centralia, southeast of Riggs, and northeast of Hinton.
