Modena is an unincorporated community in southwestern Mercer County, Missouri, United States.[1] It is located about eight miles southeast of Princeton on Missouri Supplemental Route A.

Modena was originally called Madisonville, and under the latter name was platted in 1856.[2] A post office called Modena was established in 1858, and remained in operation until 1971.[3] The present name most likely is a transfer from Mòdena, Italy.[2]
