Bois D'Arc (local /ˈbdɑːrk/; French pronunciation: ​[bwɑˈdaʁk]) is an unincorporated community in Greene County, Missouri, United States, about fifteen miles northwest of Springfield. The community is part of the Springfield, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.

A post office called Bois D'arc has been in operation since 1868.[1] The community was named for an individual osage-orange tree (also known as a bois d'arc) which stood near the original town site.[2]
