About Belton, Missouri

Belton was founded in 1869, after two men purchased an 80 acre plot of land from a man in Kentucky. The two founders named the town after a close friend who had helped them survey the land before purchasing it. Before the town was officially set up in 1844, the Shawnee tribe resided on the land, but harassment by soldiers during the Civil War caused them to leave for Oklahoma. Two notable residents of Belton include former president, Harry S. Truman and Carry Nation, the famous temperance advocate. Belton is located in Cass County, Missouri, and regarded as part of the Kansas City metropolis. Its current population is around 23,000.
