Welcome To St. Francois County, Missouri
St. Francois County, Missouri, is located in the heartland of America, just 80 miles south of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The County is largely rural and offers a varied landscape ranging from rolling crop lands to the St. Francois Mountains of the Missouri Ozarks.
Within 25 miles of the County is Taum Sauk Mountain to the west, the highest point in Missouri, and to the east, the Mississippi River.

Portions of 20 states, with a combined population of 107 million people, are located within a 500-mile radius of the County. The states in this market area include 43% of all U. S. retail sales and 47% of all U. S. manufacturing establishments. Retail sales in this market area exceed $1.5 trillion.
