The community was built on the banks of the Neosho River near Council Grove Lake. The historic Santa Fe trail runs through the town at the historic Neosho River Crossing.

In 1825 growing traffic over the Santa Fe trail brought a government survey and right-of-way treaties with the Osage Native American nation. A large grove of trees became the rendezvous for westward bound wagon trains. The Kaw Mission State Historic Site is a popular attraction.
