The village of Halltown is in northeastern Lawrence County, in southwestern Missouri. The small community has been around since about 1833, when the first settlers came to the region from Tennessee, brining chickens with them, and was named for George Hall, who established the first business in the area, selling fried chicken. Later, that business became a drug store. A post office was started in Halltown in 1879. The town grew when Route 66 was completed, and Halltown is still heralded as a stop along Historic Route 66. The village of Halltown is currently accessed through Interstate 44, Missouri Highway 266, and Missouri Highway Z. Paris Springs is west of Halltown, and Lawrenceburg and Nickelville are to the northwest while Springfield is to the east.
