Koeltztown, Missouri

Koeltztown, Missouri

Koeltztown is an unincorporated community in southern Osage County, Missouri, United States. It is located about fifteen miles southeast of Jefferson City and is one of the oldest settlements in Osage County. Founded in 1858, the community was named for its first postmaster, August Koeltz. While not Catholic, Koeltz donated land for a Catholic parish to encourage enough settlers to the area to establish a town.

During the American Civil War, a few raiders came through but there no major battles in the area. Most European settlers were German immigrants, who arrived in greatest number in the mid- to late-19th century.
