Hornersville is a city in southern Dunklin County, Missouri. It had a population of 663 at the 2010 census.

History

Hornersville is among the oldest settlements in Dunklin County or the Bootheel in general. It was founded in 1840 by William H. Horner, for whom it received its name (though settlement may have begun as early as 1832), and during its early years served as a trading post for Indians and the first white residents.[1] Significant growth did not come until after the Civil War, when the construction of the Paragould Southeastern Railroad encouraged heavier settlement.[2] The population peaked around 1940, and has gradually seen a slow decline ever since.

Hornersville was for a time the residence of a circus midget, William "Major" Ray (1860-1936), who operated a general store in town and who became the icon of the Buster Brown shoe company.[3]
