Celt is an unincorporated community in northeastern Dallas County, Missouri.[1] It is located about 19 mi (31 km) northeast of Buffalo.

History[edit]

The settlement's name was furnished by the Postal Service when it established an office there in 1888. Celt is also called "Mill Creek" because four water mills were located nearby.[2]

The post office closed in 1968.[3]

The now-abandoned Celt School was located in the settlement in the early 1940s.[4]

Celt is part of the Springfield, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.
