Visitors, tourists, and outdoorsmen think of Piedmont
and the surrounding area as remaining remarkably beautiful and
surprisingly 'pristine' in many ways. As our modern world continues to
be more and more developed, our area can still boast of miles and miles
of trees, clear streams and rivers, beautiful lakes, fresh air and
solitude. Our woods and waters are brimming with wild game and fish; the
songs of birds and natural sounds are our common pleasures.
Blending into this setting is
the City of Piedmont
and surrounding community. Modern conveniences are available but work in
harmony with our natural surroundings. The city offers 2 industrial
parks with 3 major industries thriving within them. Tourism and many
other small businesses form the backbone of our local economy. There are
several antique shops, craft stores and flea markets. Some people are
even surprised to learn that Piedmont has one
(count it) Traffic Stop Light.
Within easy driving distance
Lake, St. Francis and
Rivers. A few miles to our west is
the Ozark Natural Scenic River ways, the home of two of the most popular
float streams in America...The Current and Jacks Fork Rivers.
Here at home,
Lake is one of
Missouriís most popular fishing and recreation
lakes. From the air it sparkles like an emerald jewel nestling in a
colorful Ozark setting.
Our community also boasts of
an active Chamber of Commerce reflecting a positive, progressive
attitude. Chamber activities include sponsoring several annual events
and providing leadership with economic development and overall community
The City of
is making giant strides in community improvements. Over the past 5
years, 6 grants have been received and are being implemented improving
our water system, housing, safety, streets, airport, sidewalks, a flood
buy-out program, and various other capital improvements.
These things could not be
accomplished without the full support of our citizenry. Our churches and
civic organizations are always willing to provide their generosity,
support and a helping hand.
If you are looking for a
community to start or relocate your business, for retirement or for
seasonal pleasures, Piedmont
can be your choice to work...to play...to relax...to raise your family.
