Battlefield is named for its proximity to the 1861 Battle of Wilson's Creek, one of the first large battles of the American Civil War. Several Battlefield streets, parks, and other landmarks are named for events and people related to the battle - such as Nathaniel Lyon Street, one of the town's main thoroughfares, named for Union General Nathaniel Lyon, the first Union general to die in the civil war. The City of Battlefield was incorporated as a 4th class city in 1971 and as permitted by Missouri State Statutes, has the mayor/board of aldermen form of government. Currently the City has three geographically divided Wards which have two Aldermen each. Ward One is generally located south of Elm Street to the city limits. Ward Two is from Elm Street north to Weaver Road and Ward Three is from Weaver Road north to the city limits. Battlefield has experienced rapid residential growth in the last five years! We've grown from the 2000 US Census population of 2,385 to our current estimated population of 5,000. Large subdivisions have been planned and are being built in all areas of our city. While the growth has slowed some since the 2003-2004 timeframe, we continue to field inquiries from developers interested in our community.
