Welcome to the official website for the city of Kennett, MO. Kennett lies in the bootheel of Missouri 210 miles south of St. Louis, MO and 110 miles North West of Memphis, TN. Kennett is an agricultural hub producing goods like cotton, soybeans, rice, and watermelon that are distributed nationwide. National distribution of goods is made easy by the roadway systems put in place by the Missouri Department of Transportation. Kennett is easily accessible from Memphis or St. Louis by divided highway 412 which provides easy access from Interstate 55. Not only are the roadway systems a valuable asset to industry but also the Mississippi River port located just 15 miles East of Kennett provides easy access for interstate commerce.
Being so close to such musically infused cities like Memphis and St. Louis it’s no wonder Kennett has produced some of the most well known artists of our time like Sheryl Crow, David Nail, and Trent Tomlinson, to name a few.
You should also be aware that while Kennett is home to just under 11,000 residents it is the main source of business and commerce for up to 100,000 individuals within a 30 mile radius of our city.
Whether you’re a resident, a former resident, a business or future business friend to our city I welcome you to explore our website, consider making us your home, your next business venture, or even just a great place to visit.
Mayor of Kennett
