High Point is an unincorporated community in southern Moniteau County, Missouri, United States.[1] It is located ten miles south of California about one mile west of Route 87.

History[edit]

The first settlement at High Point was made in the 1830s.[2] A post office called High Point was established in 1852, and remained in operation until 1973.[3] The community was so named on account of its lofty elevation.[4]

The High Point Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[5]
