about us

Nixa...''Neighbors committed to an eXceptional quality of life''

Nixa traces its origins back to the mid-1800s with the movement of farmers and traders into this fertile soil region of Southwest Missouri. The first settlers were farmers who chose to locate their homes along the wooded streams in the vicinity of present day Nixa. The growing community quickly became known as a stopover or crossroads site, as the community was about a half-day's ride with a team of horses from Springfield. It became a convenient stopping point for teamsters hauling supplies from Arkansas to Springfield and for those traveling to the lower James River and Arkansas.

Nixa is one of the fastest growing cities in Missouri, located in the 66th fastest growing county in the United States. Population: 1990 (4,706), 2000 (12,124), estimated 2017 (21,500). It is from this growth that the city anticipates and is planning for continued, sustainable development opportunities in the commercial, industrial and residential markets.
