Another place that was established in response to Arkansas's restrictive liquor laws was Boise City, a community that sprang up in southern Oregon County, Missouri, just across the state line from Mammoth Spring, Arkansas in the mid-1880s during the building of a railroad to the booming mineral-water town. Boise City, or Spring City as it was called at first, was reportedly established by a local man who simply moved across the state line and started a saloon. Soon the place sported several drinking establishments, and the place was a lively little community for at least a short while (at least until the railroad was completed and the workers constructing it went home).
Exactly how long the boom lasted I'm not sure, but I do know that by the 1930s or so, Boise City had ceased to exist as a separate town and was considered an addition to Mammoth Spring. Perhaps the larger town annexed the smaller one as way of controlling the flow of liquor, but exactly when that annexation took place is unknown.
