If you're looking for a place with friendly people, you have found a home. Waynesville, now a city of over 4,000 residents, was established in 1833. It was named for the famous Revolutionary War hero, General "Mad Anthony " Wayne. It is the oldest town in Pulaski County. Waynesville is rich in history and abounding in folklore. Most of the native population in this area came by wagon train from Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North and South Carolina, and some from even further south.

Fort Leonard Wood
Fort Leonard Wood is a United States Army installation located in the Missouri Ozarks. The main gate is located on the southern boundary of St. Robert. The post was created in December 1940 and named in honor of General Leonard Wood (former Chief of Staff) in January 1941. Originally intended to train infantry troops, in 1941 it became an engineer training post with the creation of the Engineer Replacement Training Center. During World War II Italian and German POWs were interned at the fort. In 1984, as part of the Base Realignment and Closure process, most of the U.S. Army Engineer School's operations were consolidated at Fort Leonard Wood. Before that, officer training was conducted at Fort Belvoir Virginia.
