The History of Clever

The land that would eventually become Clever was not settled until around the 1890’s. As more people began to settle in Southwestern Missouri, the ‘Old Wire Road’ was established from St. Louis to Fort Smith, Arkansas which passed through Springfield, Missouri and through Christian County. This road was used often by settlers and supply trains headed for Fort Smith. Once a road was established from Springfield to Billings, Missouri that crossed the Old Wire Road, a crossroad was established in what would later become the town of Clever. Clever was suggested as a name for the newly established town because the residents were “friendly and wise.” For the first one hundred years of Clever’s existence, the population stayed around 500 residents. However, between 1990 to 2010 the population quadrupled to around 2,100.

The Clever Education System

Clever has a well-established excellent school system, with the Clever Jay’s being the pride of the town.
