3 Facts About Raytown's Fascinating History

  • The area where Raytown now sits was developed by 19th-century pioneers who sought fertile lands and waters as they made their way west across that area of the country.
  • Raytown was known as "The Lost Township" because when Jackson County was formed in 1827, the area that is now Raytown was accidentally left out of the settlement deal, which prompted people to move and squat in the area until it was sold and officially settled in 1843.
  • Blacksmith William Ray settled his shop in the early 1850s and a town developed around it. People would call it "Ray's town" and the name stuck, eventually changing to Raytown.
