Founded in 1867, Weaubleau is a town in Hickory County, Missouri. The community was called Weaubleau City for a time, in honor of the stream that runs through it, before being renamed Haran in 1880, but it was renamed Weaubleau in 1881. Weaubleau Christian College and Weaubleau Congregational Christian Church pre-date the town, which was built around these institutions, largely spurred by the arrival of the Kansas City, Osceola, and Southern Railroad, also known as The Frisco, in 1898. Originally, there was a station at Collins, five miles west, and a hook line connected the community with the railroad, but a depot was established at Weaubleau in 1898. The college began in 1873 as Weaubleau Christian Institute, and closed in 1914, The church served the community from 1867 to 1960. The city is served by US Highway 54 and Missouri Route 123, which intersect near the center of town. Surrounding communities include Collins, Elkton, Flemington, Galmey, Gerster, Humansville, Quincy, and Wheatland. Springfield is about sixty miles south of Weaubleau.
