Auxvasse was originally called Clinton City, and under the latter name was platted in 1873. The present name is after nearby Auxvasse Creek. A post office called Auxvasse has been in operation since 1874. Auxvasse has been claimed by at least 3 Callaway County townships since they were first delineated in 1821, when Auxvasse was located at the far northeast corner of the original boundaries of the then far-larger Cote Sans Dessein township for a period of only a few months. New townships (Fulton, Round Prairie, Nine Mile Prairie) were formed 1821-1838 in northern Callaway County, and a study of historical references should clarify which township Auxvasse was claimed by during that period. In February 1838, the newly-formed Liberty Township included Auxvasse as a key town in its eastern sector for nearly 40 years; but when the newer Jackson Township was created in December 1875, Auxvasse was included instead in its western half, where it remains to this day as its largest population center.
