Crocker Mo is located on Highway 17 North of Waynesville and it’s history runs deep in Pulaski County. Settlers founded the city around 1854 and it consisted of a store, a couple of log cabins and larger house that served as a boarding house and an inn. In 1868, the Frisco Railroad coming from Dixon was being finished, just east of Humboldt. After a depot was started about a mile southeast of Humboldt, the trading post began to die. A center that was used for shipping was built, that would serve the towns not located on the railroad such as Waynesville, Iberia and Hawkeye. Thus Crocker was born.
