Elijah, Missouri is an unincorporated community in eastern Ozark County, Missouri, United States.[2] It is about twenty-two miles west of West Plains on Missouri Supplemental Route V just one mile south of U.S. Route 160. The community is located on North Bridges Creek with Spoon Spring within the village.[1]
