History

William and Anna Merriam purchased more than six hundred acres of land in Taney County with Rockaway Beach as the focal point. They proceeded to make a real estate project out of this acreage, and soon people became permanent residents of the resort area. With the population growing, there was a need for a post office. Until this time, mail was addressed "Rockaway Beach, on Lake Taneycomo, via Branson, Missouri." The town established its first post office on January 31, 1919, with the name Taneycomo, Missouri. However, it was soon changed to the Rockaway Beach Post Office when the first postmaster, Jacob Mueller, figured the name of the resort might be duplicated elsewhere in the state.
