Barnhart, Missouri Heating and Cooling Services
Barnhart is a small town in Jefferson County that had over 5,000 people in the 2010 census. In 1834, the O’Fallons, a family with ties to William Clark, settled in Barnhart. Benjamin O’Fallon was William Clark’s nephew. Benjamin O’Fallon later had two sons, James and John O’Fallon. The “James O’Fallon Home” still exists in Barnhart. The majority of Barnhart’s old historical buildings still stand due to careful preservation and the community’s pride in them. The O’Fallon family originally owned the land around Barnhart, but the town was named after the Barhart family because one of the members of the family had donated land for the Frisco Railroad Depot. The railroad was responsible for transferring the town’s mail. Barnhart was not officially named until the early 1900s when the Frisco Railroad Depot was completed. Some early settlers’ names may have been Harris, Moss, and Stites.
At the beginning of the 1960s, the Kohler family petitioned for the town’s name to be changed from Barnhart to Kohler City. They wanted to change the name of the railroad station which determined the name of the town itself. The petition failed however due to the fact that the Barnhart family had planned for such an event and had written in their deed to Frisco Railroad Depot that if the town’s name was ever changed then the land they had given to the railroad would be forfeit and would be returned to the Barnhart family. Several of the locals also fought against the change of the town’s name such as Grover Davis. Grover Davis put up a sign announcing that the town was still Barnhart even as the Kohler family fought against it.
