Stanton is an unincorporated community in Franklin County, Missouri, United States. It lies on Interstate 44 at the junction with Missouri Supplemental Route W. Prior to Interstate 44, it was an important town on U.S. Route 66 due to the nearby Meramec Caverns very prominently advertised up and down the highway on barns. Several businesses are still located at this interchange, such as Wedding Bells (a reception hall), Three Sisters (a consignment shop), Barbie and Ken on 66 ( a consignment shop), Golden Bear ( a gas station and fireworks store), Antique Toy Museum, Jesse James Wax Museum, Reptile Ranch, and a K.O.A. campground.
