Boston is an unincorporated community in southern Barton County, Missouri.[1] It is about halfway between Lamar and Jasper. It is about one mile northeast of the intersection of U.S. Route 71 and Route 126 on county roads. It once had a post office, but mail is now delivered from Lamar.

A post office called Boston was established in 1891, and remained in operation until 1971.[2] The community is named after Boston, Massachusetts.[3]
