Schools & Communities Willow Springs


Willow Springs is in northeastern Howell County. It is named for a large spring surrounded by willow trees, about eight miles east of the present city, where the original town was located. The town moved to its current location when the railroad was built in the area. The Eleven Point River originates as a number of drainages flowing through the town.

The City of Willow Springs operates under a Mayor/Council form of government. All policy-making authority is vested in the Mayor and Board of Aldermen.

The Willow Springs R-IV School District includes the high school, middle school and elementary school.
