Laquey (pronounced "Lake-way") is an unincorporated community in Pulaski County, Missouri.[1] It is about six miles southwest of Waynesville. It was founded in 1900 and named for the Laquey family.

A post office called Laquey has been in operation since 1899.[2] The community has the name of the local Laquey family.[3]

While the community is unincorporated, it is experiencing rapid growth due to its proximity to Fort Leonard Wood. The Laquey R-V School District had been for many years a K-8 district but in the early 1970s expanded to begin a high school. It's now the third-largest school district in Pulaski County, after Waynesville and Dixon.
