Strafford is a growing community in southwest Missouri. Just minutes east of Springfield on Interstate 44, Strafford prides itself with its rich history, AAA schools, dedication toward community and economic development, safe and comfortable neighborhoods—both rustic and new, and community involvement. They invite you to discover their community.
A few miles of paved Americana passes though our community. The famous Route 66 calls Strafford home for this short stretch, and we invite you to make it your home, too. Every fall, Strafford celebrates the mother road during Route 66 Days. The celebration includes a parade, classic car show, games, and lots of food.
