Location of Huntsdale, Missouri

Huntsdale is a village in Boone County, Missouri, United States. It is part of the Columbia, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 31 at the 2010 census.

The area was first settled in 1817, making it the second oldest settlement in Boone County.[4] The village was founded on August 1, 1892 and named after William Bunch Hunt,[5] a landowner. Huntsdale was first incorporated in 1906, but that status eventually fell into neglect and the last village council election took place in 1929.[4]

Due mainly to an influx of residential development in the area, Huntsdale was reincorporated in February 2003 and its first elections were held two months later.[6][7]

The center of activity in Huntsdale is Katfish Katy's [1], a small general store that sits beside the Katy Trail and features a campground and boat ramp. Katy's Little Lodge [2], a bed and breakfast, is another notable business in the village.
