Cook Station is an unincorporated town in southern Crawford County, Missouri, about ten miles south of Steelville. The community was founded by Christopher Columbus Cook in the 1850s, on 2,000 acres of land that was granted to him by President Buchanan in 1850. During the Civil War, Cook became a captain in the Confederate Army. After the war, he resumed farming in Cook Station, where he lived until his death in 1900. The St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad constructed a branch line from Cuba, Missouri to Salem, Missouri, stopping at Cook Station, and a post office was established there in 1874. Other communities surrounding Cook Station include Winkler, Bangert, Short Bend, Sligo, Cherryville, and Keysville.
