Urbana is a city in Dallas County, Missouri, United States. The population was 417 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Springfield, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.

History[edit]

A post office called Urbana has been in operation since 1856.[6] The city was named after Urbana, Illinois, the native home of a share of the early settlers.[7] Urbana was not named for Urbana IL. It was named by Jane Harriet Reser Glanville for her beloved home in eastern TN. She attended Urbana Chapel Methodist Church and so she gave the post office that name. The office was first in Hickory County in 1848. Then it was moved into Dallas County and has always had the same name. This can be confirmed my United States Postal Service records and Glanville family history.
