From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Two Mile Prairie is an unincorporated area in northern Columbia Township, Boone County, Missouri, United States, northeast of Columbia. Its elevation is 879 feet (268 m), and it is located at 39°1′5″N 92°10′1″W / 39.01806°N 92.16694°W / 39.01806; -92.16694 (39.0180968, -92.1668479).[1]

It shares a name with Two Mile Prairie Elementary School in Columbia. The community is part of the Columbia Metropolitan Statistical Area.

An 1882 book, History of Boone County,[2] offers the following description:

"Some of the finest farms in the State of Missouri, or in the West, are to be found in the Columbia township. On them are to be found not only fertile fields but fruitful orchards, pleasant pastures, lovely lawns, and handsome, commodious and elegant residences. Some of the farmhouses in the township present the appearance of the mansion of an English landlord, and the estates are in the highest state of cultivation and improvement. The farms on Two-mile prairie have an extended reputation, but a majority of the timber farms produce on an average fully as well, albeit a great deal of the soil in the timber is so poor as to be practically worthless for the purposes of ordinary cultivation." [3]
