About our Town
Bald Knob's namesake was a huge, somewhat round rock out-cropping which covered nearly an acre of ground. It was surrounded by a flat rock shelf and could be seen from quite a distance. It was a landmark for many years before it was quarried and used in the construction of the Missouri Pacific Railroad.
Bald Knob and the surrounding area became known as "The Strawberry Center of the World". Truck and train car loads of this highly sought after commodity were shipped from the Waller Family Strawberry Market for several years. Other states found they could grow them earlier, but none could grow them any sweeter.
Bald Knob has countless recreational opportunities. The White and Little Red rivers are nearby. Fifteen lakes offer excellent fishing and are periodically stocked with walleye, black bass, small mouth bass, striped bass, hybrid bass, crappie and catfish. Fish are plentiful in the 217 acre Bald Knob Lake, located two miles north of the city. Other recreational opportunities include hunting, golf, tennis, bowling, and water sports.
