Clearwater is an unincorporated community in Saline Township in Sainte Genevieve County, Missouri. It is located about fifteen miles southwest of Sainte Genevieve on Missouri Supplemental Route W.

History[edit]

Clearwater was named by the town's first postmaster, J. C. Nations, for Clearwater, Florida, where his cousin lived. The town on the west coast of Florida, near Tampa, is now known as Clearwater Harbor.[4]

A post office was established at Clearwater in 1929, and remained in operation until 1981.[5]
