DescriptionNeosho was named for the Osage word describing the clear water of a large spring near the center of town. The community was the boyhood home of artist Thomas Hart Benton, whose bold caricature-like paintings and murals portrayed the nation's ideas of life west of the Mississippi River in the early 1800s.
