ⓘ Pollock, Missouri

Pollock was established in July, 1873 by H.F. Warner and William Lane and originally consisted of thirty-two blocks. Another fourteen blocks, located south of the original, was added to the town plat in 1876 via Godfreys Addition. By 1877 Pollock included two general stores, a drug store, blacksmith shop, one hotel, a schoolhouse and a small depot for the Burlington & Southwestern Railroad with a town population of one hundred, and a United States Post Office was established in Pollock in 1879. A major fire swept through a portion of the Pollock business district in January, 1936. Three buildings - Rosenberrys Garage, Morlan General Store, and Anspach Cafe -- were total losses, while buildings containing O.L. Castos store and Millers Store received major damage. The Pollock community had a high school between 1923 and 1939. Class sizes were predictable small considering the towns population, with an average of ten students per class year. The smallest class was 1938 with only three graduates, while the largest was the Class of 1937 with thirteen diploma recipients. Due to economic conditions the junior and senior years were discontinued between 1932 and 1937, and students in those grades had to finish their education elsewhere, primarily Milan, which was readily accessible via rail. The Pollock high school closed for good following the 1939 graduation and all secondary students incorporated into the Milan school district. The elementary school continued a few years longer into the mid 1950s. Currently all children in the Pollock area attend classes in the Milan C-2 school district.

In the mid 1970-ies, soon after Pollock celebrated his century, eight new apartments housed in two buildings - was built for use by the elderly. Was built in the late 1980s, with an extension to the house the United States post office, built in the late 1990-ies metal of a new community building. Significant community support has resulted in the building of the city Park Pollock around 1990. Residents William Castel, Melvin Casto and dick Stuart led the campaign to raise funds and volunteers, recruited from all over to purchase Park equipment and training grounds. Pollock was dealt a serious blow on July 26, 2011, when the U.S. postal service announced plans to close the post Pollock as part of a nationwide restructuring plan. A previous attempt in the late 1980-ies to close a post office Pollock was appealed and reversed with the help of Senator kit bond of Missouri, the United States and other politicians.
