You can look for a smaller town in Missouri than this one, but you won't find one. Nope. Missouri's smallest town only has 3 residents that call it home, but they're apparently doing quite well, thank you very much.

Per the United States Census which was last counted back in 2020, the smallest town in Missouri is Baker. It's so small even Google Maps hasn't bothered to drive past there. You can zoom in and see it from satellite though. It's some gravel, a couple driveways and a barn or two.

Back in 2010, the population was 3 and 10 years later, it remained the same although one person left and one new person arrived (hopefully voluntarily). Here's the kicker though. Baker, Missouri is also one of the most affluent thanks to their median income. Wikipedia says the following:

The median income for a household and a family in the village was $177,361. Males had a median income of $100,000 versus $79,631 for females. The per capita income for the village was $182,000.

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say this is a hard-working farm family who has earned every single penny they have the hard way. I would also guess they live a very happy life of seclusion unlike people in the city who have people living within 5 feet on both sides of them. They don't have a space problem in Baker, Missouri. Nope.

Baker, Missouri is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state. If you drive through it, don't blink or you'll miss it. I'm guessing the 3 people in Baker like it that way, too.
