SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 306

WHEREAS, the Missouri Senate is very proud of the diverse heritage and landscape which make up this fine state and always welcomes the opportunity to acknowledge milestone contemporary events which continue to enhance this region's history; and

WHEREAS, on March 3, 1999, the residents of McDonald County will initiate the Sesquicentennial Celebration of their county's founding which was established by an act of the Missouri Legislature on March 3, 1849, after an initial land survey by Nathan Richardson; and

WHEREAS, originally called "Seneca" in 1847, McDonald County now carries the name of Sergeant Alexander McDonald, a soldier who distinguished himself as one of the heroes of the Revolutionary War; and

WHEREAS, located in the southwest corner of the state, McDonald County boasts a 1955 historic highway marker located in Southwest City which marks the border between Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma, and which commemorates the only tricornered part of the state on dry land; and

WHEREAS, Rutledge was the first county seat, but due to some violent incidents the courts moved to the J.C. McKay home in Pineville which became the permanent county seat in 1857 with an official courthouse constructed soon thereafter; and

WHEREAS, McDonald County has enjoyed both fame and notoriety throughout much of its history which documents when the town of Indian Springs earned acclaim in the 1880s as a source of healing waters; the town of Splitlog became infamous as a source of "fool's gold"; Pineville was the 1938 setting for the production of Jesse James, a film that starred Henry Fonda, Randolph Scott, and Tyrone Power; the post office located in the town of Noel became a perennial favorite with holiday mailers for its stamp-cancellation postmark at Christmas time; and a 1961 dispute over the omission of the Elk River-Noel Playground area from the statewide vacation map brought an article of secession to the desk of Governor Dalton, an official proclamation from the General Assembly rejecting the motion to secede, and about a week of national media attention:

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninetieth General Assembly, join unanimously to applaud the history and citizens of McDonald County and to offer a word of congratulations as the County celebrates a century and a half as an important territorial division for local government in the great State of Missouri; and
