Residents enjoy all the benefits of small-town living, like good schools and a close-knit community even a drive-in movie theater. But it s the 200-acre lake (stocked, of course), thriving industry and commitment to a high quality of life that really makes Lamar a special town and a great place to raise a family.
It s a town steeped in history President Harry S. Truman was born here and Wyatt Earp s career began here that s embracing the world of today, with a new 4,000-foot runway, a state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor aquatic center and more. All this plus the low cost of living and local amenities make Lamar a wonderful place to call home.
