History of Joplin

The City of Joplin was established in 1873.

Although lead was what initially drew many settlers, Joplin's zinc resource became extremely valuable and brought much growth to the area.

Carver is known for inventing hundreds of products that used the peanut, but also had an important role in educating farmers on ways to prevent soil depletion. Carver was raised just outside of Joplin, and today his monument stands inside of a 240-acre national park as a tribute to the important work he did.
